Adopt A Needy Family 2016

By | Charitable Giving, Community | No Comments

On behalf of the St. George Community, the Beta Club, our middle school honor and service organization, ornamentsis coordinating a Christmas gift-giving project. St. George has generously participated in the Adopt A Needy Family project for over 10 years. Our goal is to help nine families have a joyous Christmas by providing a few special gifts, some Christmas decorations and items of true need. Many of the gift items are necessities such as clothing, hygiene items, linens, house-wares, space heaters and cleaning supplies.

In addition to gift sponsorship, the Beta Club would greatly appreciate donations of gift boxes, large and extra large gift bags, tissue paper, bows, ribbon and Christmas wrapping paper. These nine families also have a variety of larger needs such as bicycles, beds, microwaves, etc. If you are interested in helping or have questions, please contact the AANF Coordinators at aanfstgeorge@gmail.com.

If you would like to help, please take an ornament or two from the bulletin board that will be in the Gathering Area.  Purchase the gifts indicated on the ornament and drop them by the church office by December 1.  Please attach the paper ornament to your gift, but don’t wrap the gift.  Our Beta Club Elves will wrap the gifts and make sure that they are delivered in time for Christmas.  Thank you for your giving spirit!

We wish you a blessed holiday season,

Your 2016 AANF Coordinators,

Carla Bick and Tinker Notzon
