The Children’s Aid and Family Services 2017 Holiday Gift Drive has begun!
Each year our congregation supports Children’s Aid and Family Services by hosting a holiday gift drive for the vulnerable children and families they serve. In some instances, families make difficult decisions about how to spend their limited funds. When this happens, birthday gifts, school field trips, and holiday gifts, seen as less of a necessity, are eliminated from the budget. But to a child, that one gift can make all the difference in the world. We are looking to provide gifts for 50 children and youth this year. The gifts must be delivered by December 9th.  If you would like to participate, please see Sean Brennan at coffee hour.
