We will be helping with the Gifts for Parents (Dec. 2), a program that provides free gifts for low income children to give to significant adults in their lives. To contribute, you can:
1) Donate gifts. Gifts should be new or gently used. Some ideas include: tools, kitchen items, Hawkeye items, wallets, flashlights, costume jewelry, but basically anything a child might like to give would be fine. The only thing we can't accept are food and clothing. Gifts for men are always especially needed. Please bring them to the church in November and put them in the donation bin with the Gifts for Parents sign.
2) Volunteer. Volunteer opportunities include: greeting families, escorting children to the gift room, assisting in the gift room, and helping wrap gifts on December 2, as well as behind the scenes support work in the days before. You can find details and sign up online by clicking here.
Also, the Kids Wing will sponsor a Mitten Tree in December, gathering kids hats, scarves, and mittens to help children stay warm this winter. Please keep us in mind as you shop for children's winter accessories! You can bring them to the church in December to decorate our tree.
