Christmas for Refugees
We are so excited about the opportunity to bring HOPE and LIGHT to thousands of our Refugee Neighbors this Holiday Season. These new neighbors are being relocated from Ft. Picket, to cities across the US, and right here in our own communities. While God has provided this incredible “open door” we want to use this opportunity to show the love of Jesus through the “gift of giving”.
There are two ways you can help with this worthy endeavor. Stop by our Christmas Center in the Grand Lobby. Take a “gift tag” from our Refugee Tree purchase items and return the gifts UNWRAPPED by DECEMBER 12TH. The second option is to stop by our Christmas Center, swipe your card and give financially towards helping bring the Joy of Christmas to those who need it most.
List of Needed Items:
DAD: Grooming & Beard Trimming Kits~ Lotions/Colognes ~ Board/Card Games
MOM: Jewelry (bracelets, bangles)~ Pashmina/Scarfs~ Lotions/Perfumes
