Sharing Joy with Our Neighbors
St Luke’s is once again working with three holiday programs to benefit our community this holiday season. Starting November 14th there will be a tree set up right outside the sanctuary with tags. One color will be for the M.O.M. Winter Wishes program and one for the Dane County Foster Family program. There will be a bin nearby for the Elver Park Program.
The M.O.M program will have tags on the tree with families and the kinds of gift cards the families would like. All M.O.M. gift cards are $50. Pick a tag, register at the table by the tree, and bring the gift cards back to the church office by December 5th. Be sure the envelope has the tag attached and is marked: M.O.M.
The Dane County Foster Family Program will have tags on the tree with the gifts needed. Pick up a tag, register at the table by the tree and return the wrapped gifts to the church office by December 5th. You may also purchase gift cards of any denomination. Attach the tag to the gift and make sure envelopes with gift cards are clearly marked: Dane County Foster Families. Please return all gifts and gift cards to the church by December 5th.
The Elver Park Neighborhood Program will place a bin near the tree to collect new unwrapped toys. There is an Amazon Smile wish list with specific ideas here.
You may also purchase gift cards. Have toys shipped to you and then return the toys to the bin or the gift cards (in envelopes clearly marked: Elver Park) to the church office by December 14th.
If you have any questions please call the office or email Darce Olson firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you, St. Luke’s, for helping to make the holidays joyful and special for everyone in our community!
Many of these kiddos are struggling at a deeper level during the pandemic. Sharing the joy of Christmas can be a bright spot; you can make a difference!
