Christmas Giving Although the holiday season will look much different for all of us this year, we would like to continue with our Christmas Giving program. We have reached out to the Newark preschool that we have partnered with for the last 10 years to sponsor their students once again. From their principal “We are always honored and humbled to be not only thought of by you and the congregation but truly blessed to be recipients of your sponsorship for Christmas.”
The school is 100% remote for students but the staff comes in everyday. They will be able to set up a tent with teaching staff and family workers to distribute and have parents come and pick up the gift bags on a scattered schedule to make sure everyone is safe. It will be a welcome surprise as many preschoolers have had a tough time with remote learning.
Our drive is now concluded and it’s time to deliver the packages Thank you for your generous donations of toys and for bringing some Christmas fun to the Early Childhood Center of the North Ward.
Love, The Christmas Mission Sub-Committee: Susan Johnson, Kay Britton, Tabby Gillim, and Ann Schwenke
