It is hard to believe that fall is almost here and with that — Thanksgiving and Christmas. As these Holidays approach, you will be hearing about opportunities where you can serve those who are in need through the Community-Wide Thanksgiving meal that will be provided, pairing with families for Christmas, and helping with the Christmas Toy Stores. We need lots of toys, puzzles, games and books for children and youth of all ages to stock our toy store. So check for up-dates in our newsletters, on Facebook (Neighborhood Christian Center of Alabama), our web page (www.decaturncc.org), or call us at 256.351.7633. We would love for you to be involved. Please e-mail us to let us know if you would like to get involved (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The “Christmas Toy Store” is another program that we sponsor during the Holiday Season. Last year the Christmas Toy Store was incredible. The out-pouring of the community, church groups, individuals, families, organizations and businesses was overwhelming. So many provided by praying, providing toys, helping with set-up and clean-up, volunteering the day of the Toy Store, and providing refreshments while the families waited their turn to shop.
Interested in helping a needy family for Christmas? It is hard to believe but, Christmas is almost here and it is time for us to begin pairing needy families for Christmas. The Christmas Pairing Program was designed to aid low-income families with Christmas items for their children. These families are “paired” with sponsors.
