Christmas Offering 2023 is in full swing!
What is the Christmas Offering?
This project is for seniors enrolled in the Senior Citizen Project and children ages 3 to 12 that are enrolled in the Children’s Project along with their siblings up to 15 years of age. The goal of the annual Christmas Offering is to provide children and the elderly with presents to open on Christmas day and nutritious food to create meals to celebrate during the holiday season.
Why does this project exist?
We want the Christmas season to be one of happiness filled with presents to open and delicious meals around the table, yet sadly for those living in poverty this is often not the case. With the high cost of living in this area, after paying for rent, gas, and utilities, parents simply do not have money left over to purchase gifts for their children. The elderly are often without family or friends making Christmas a lonely time with no celebration or presents to open. Through this program, the young and old alike can experience the joy of the holiday season with presents under the tree and nutritious meals to enjoy with family and friends.
