Christmas Angel Tree Project
St. James has been privileged to sponsor 8 – 10 families each Christmas. We like to give each child in the family 4 gifts. 2 of the gifts are clothing and 2 gifts are games, toys, etc. We get our ideas and sizes from the children’s wish list. We also give gifts to the parents or guardians. In addition to the gifts we are very generous in giving each family food, which includes meat, produce, canned goods, dairy and baked goods.
We receive our family names from school. Besides our church, we have several individuals, organizations such as Boy Scouts, and the Thrift Shop to provide the gifts. Our Pre School and Day Care collect food items which is very helpful.
Please join us by selecting an angel or angels off of the Christmas tree in the Gathering Room, during Advent. On each angel you will find an idea for a gift, size and gender are included. On the back of the angel the date of when you need to bring your gift in to be placed under the tree. Envelopes will also be on the tree, if you are unable to get out to shop but would like to participate . This money would go towards the purchase of food.
We hope you will feel the Christmas Spirit this year to help a family have a Merry Christmas!
