Christmas Care and Share


Charity and Social Justice Commission Sponsors Annual Christmas Care and Share Supporting Family Promise  

Our annual Christmas Care and Share collection for Family Promise’s holiday store was another over the top success! Each year, your donations are more generous and with the year that 2020 has been, you have been even MORE generous.

We collected over $900 in gift cards. Plus, there was an ENORMOUS assortment of games, puzzles, crafts and books, along with clothes, hats, gloves, mittens, household goods, etc. We needed a small trailer filled to the brim to transport all of the items to the Kinsman Center!

Also, through your generous contributions to our Charity and Justice collection envelopes this year, we were able to give Family Promise $2,500.00 to help provide food, clothing, bus passes, etc. for the families living there.

Thank you for your continued generosity to our families in need. Over 60 families (including about 140 children) composed of those currently in the program and those who are now in homes on their own in the community benefited from the Care and Share collection. Because of your generosity, children had gifts to open on Christmas morning. We appreciate your continued generosity for 21 years - since 1999! We could not have done it without you. MANY, MANY thanks to all!
