Angel Giving Tree

From now until December 8th, we will have trees up in the narthex at church and by the chapel entrance. Tags will be on the trees listing toy requests by needy children in our area. Bring the toys back to church and put in the boxes by the trees. The toys will be taken to the Salvation Army so that parents that qualify may select toys for their children at the annual "Joy SHoppe" at the Salvation Army in December. There will also be tags listing items needed by eldery residents in our area. These gifts will be taken to the Eastern NE Office on Aging, who distributes the gifts to those in need for us. Please return the unwrapped gifts to the boxes by the trees at church by Monday, December 8th. Thank you for any help you can give. ~Social Concerns Committee
