Gifts Needed for Christmas Party for All God’s Children
Saturday, December 9th at 5:00 pm
You can help make it a success. We are collecting toys for our annual Christmas party to benefit 175+ children from local homeless shelters and organizations. In lieu of toys, you can write a check to “FUMC” and put “Homeless Christmas Party” in the memo line. BUT if you love to buy toys, we need toys for ages 0-15. Please do not wrap your gifts. Buy whatever you choose, but here are some gift ideas: infant toys; board games; soccer, basketball & other sports balls; dolls/barbies; pretty ponies; trucks; action figures; matchbox cars; blocks; educational toys; legos; craft or art supplies; jewelry; watches; purses/ bags; and hand-held games. Please include batteries for toys that require them. Consider preparing a complete gift bag for one child (1 larger item, ~3 smaller items, ~$75 value max; indicate age and gender – let Lana know if you plan to do this). You may drop off your gifts in the box located in the narthex by Thursday evening, December 7. In addition to toys, we are collecting books, new or gently used, suitable for ages 2 through 16. Please put your book donations in the collection box in the narthex. Volunteers are also needed for: kitchen, crafts/games, drivers, behind the stage, on stage, set-up, making treats, packing gift bags.
