Annual Christmas in July Campaign Is Underway!
Wrap those presents and deck the halls – IT’S CHRISTMAS IN JULY! Once again we take the opportunity in July to raise money for our Christmas families!
Instead of hitting you up during the holiday season when budgets are tight, the Missions Committee is asking for your help and assistance now. We hope that you would take a few dollars that would have went for a watermelon, a pack of hot dogs, or a day at Noelridge Park and help provide for Christmas assistance for a families in need. It is our goal to assist two families from HACAP and by raising $500 over the next several weeks. Last year this amount not only bought presents and clothes for five children and three adults, it also provided some personal necessities and food.
From now until Sunday, August 13, the Mission Committee will have a tree in the narthex with ornaments on it. As in years past, simply take an ornament with an amount on it, and drop your gift in the offering plate. In late November, we will help purchase the needs requested from the families.
If you have any questions, please see one of the Missions members: Betty Hohensee, Nancy Kotalik, Carrie Lane, Reta Saylor and Tobey Slagenweit-Coffman. You are also invited to call Tobey at 319-826-8183.
