Share the Season of Christmas with Others

Christmas is coming and we will eagerly reach out again to at least thirty five families. In their Christmas boxes there will also be a very special Christmas card from St. Francis.

Here are ways you can be a part of serving these families:

· Donate food, checks to purchase food and gift cards for families

· Take the names of one or more children to shop for

· Volunteer to drive (we hope that if you drove at Thanksgiving, you can drive again (please let us know).

· Saturday, December 21, at 9:00 am to sort food

· Volunteer to load up cars with boxes of food and gifts on Sunday, December 22. The Mission, Discipleship, Evangelism

  Committee gives you thanks! God bless our efforts.
