We really need your help to make the holidays special for our neighbors in need. There are many opportunities to participate throughout this season:
Thanksgiving - You can help by (1) donating individual Thanksgiving food such as corn, green beans, sweet potatoes/yams, other vegetables, stuffing, potatoes, rice, cranberry sauce, gravy, fruit, dessert item, juice (no refrigerated items, please!)
(2) making a monetary contribution toward the purchase of perishables and/or Safeway/Giant gift cards, or (3) "adopting" a family, providing all the fixings for a savory Thanksgiving feast. There is an adopt-a-family sign-up sheet as well as a large envelope for monetary donations in the church office. For more information, please contact Meg Baker. This Sunday, November 23 is the last day to bring food or monetary donations for Thanksgiving.
The Giving Tree - We will once again be providing gifts for our neighbors in need this Christmas. The Giving Tree will be up and decorated beginning November 23 - we hope you will stop by to select a child for whom you are willing to provide a Christmas gift. We are asking that all gifts be delivered to St. Paul's by Sunday morning, 12/14. We will also be giving each family a Target or JC Penney gift card ($25) for last minute Christmas gifts, and you may wish to make this your contribution. For more information, please contact Meg Baker.
Cookies and Carols Party - St. Paul's will be hosting its third annual Cookies and Carols
party for these families on 12/21 from 2:00-4:00 in Heavener Hall. Please join us in celebrating the season with our neighbors that day! There are also many opportunities to volunteer, such as baking sugar cookies and cupcakes, decorating Heavener Hall, and helping with children's crafts. For more information, please contact Kim Longsworth.
