This year New Hope Ministries is replacing the “Adopt a Family” Christmas gift program (better known as the “Angel Tree” here at St. John’s) with a new process that will reach more families in need with your Christmas blessing.
Go to the list provided by New Hope of items often requested by families struggling during Christmas. Using this list you will be able to purchase gift items from ages infant to senior citizen. If you are able to donate this year, please place your “unwrapped” gift items in the box marked “New Hope Christmas” located in the coat closet in the Narthex. We will be collecting gifts here at St. John’s throughout the month of November.
The Social Ministry Committee will deliver all the gifts to New Hope by Monday, December 1. At the New Hope facility all the unwrapped gifts will be displayed in one area where clients will be able to select gifts for their family and then, if they choose, volunteers will be available to wrap their gifts for them.
