MISSIONS

November's MIsson Project will be the Giving Tree. We will be collecting 5 Senior Care Kits and 18 Angel Tree Sets through the Salvation Army. Angel tree sets go to a child who would not receive a gift for Christmas. The biggest need for donations is the gift tags for children. The tag lists the child's clothing size and toy suggestion/need/favorites. They are asking that we pick a clothing items, gift items and a book (new this year). Please do no wrap anything and keep the tag with it.

We will not have the tags til mid-November but if you would like to donate money now for any tags that don't get a sponsor, you can do that through the offering plate or paypal. Please label donation for November Mission.

The Senior care kits include one of the follwing and a gift card. Included are: blanket, toiletry kit, candle set, tea/coffee mug set, activity or coloring book and stationary.

You also have the option of purchasing an item and donating it without selecting a tag, child or senior, and the Salvation Army will put it towards tags that haven't been selected. There is a list of items that they suggest for general donation. I will be adding a link here to the full list.

Thank you for your donations to this project and your willingness to help those in need this Christmas Season.
