As we begin to look forward to celebrating with  family and friends this holiday season,  let’s join together and brighten up the holidays for those less fortunate…

You can help our neighbors in need by participating in filling Christmas Baskets with non-perishable foods and gift cards or by making a gift bag for a homeless CCSA Client. Our CCSA Christmas tree will be located in the UCUC narthex beginning on Sunday, November 17 and will  be decorated with ornaments.  On the back of each ornament will be the name of food items or monetary amounts for gift cards.  You may  take as many ornaments as you wish.  Your donations should be returned to the boxes under the Christmas tree by Sunday, December 8th.  Following worship on the 8th the children and the youth will be sorting our donations and the Social Concerns committee will complete the basket packing.  A $35 gift card will be placed in a beautiful Christmas card and included in each basket. The baskets will be delivered to CCSA in mid December.

There is also a need for individual gift bags for homeless men and women.  Please put the following items in a festive holiday gift bag:  hygiene products, tooth brush, toothpaste, Chap Stick, brush or comb, socks and a $10 gift card. Thank you, in advance, for your continued generosity and support of this CCSA’s Mission-Ministry.
