Books for Children at Christmas
During the week before Christmas, we open Santa’s workshop to members of our pantry. Each child receives one toy and one book. We have a wonderful volunteer who comes dressed as Mrs. Santa. She reads to the children and helps them pick out their book, allowing the parents time to pick out Christmas gifts, so they remain a surprise on Christmas morning.
We also have a few gifts for parents so that children learn the joy of giving also. This is a wonderful way to celebrate God’s gift of His Son to the World.
To do this we need the help of the community. Could you collect books from your family, friends , clubs, schools? Books need to be appropriate for ages 1 trough 18. We will need them by Dec 15.
Help us spread the JOY!
