Look in the Narthex for the Giving Tree for Family Focus

Categories: Mission

Please help support the families at Family Focus this Christmas season by taking a tag from the Giving Tree in the narthex and purchasing the requested item. Gifts are due at noon on Monday, December 17th.  Please remember to sign the gift list so we know who has which gift tags!

A few things to note: There are about 100 tags, mostly for children, but there are also a few for several mothers and one father who are raising children in difficult circumstances and could use a little Christmas cheer as well; most of these parents’ requests are for very practical things like gift cards or sweaters. And, there are again the many teenagers who would like gift cards, which we would suggest limiting to $25 or $30. While these aren’t as much fun for us to shop for, they do give extra pleasure to these kids by allowing them the rare thrill of shopping for themselves. And, if a requested gift is beyond your budget, a gift card to put toward the item is a good solution.

Thank you so much for supporting this much-appreciated service project!  If you have any questions, please email Kelly Brest van Kempen or call her at at 224-639-3636.
