Christmas Families Outreach
With a new twist…
When we contacted Haldimand & Norfolk Women's Services about buying presents for Christmas, they informed us their families had identified food as their biggest need.
We decided to respect this wish, and looked for a way to make it personal to each family.
As a result we have asked them to identify one kitchen item the family needs, and the name of the grocery store they shop at.
We will be giving each family a recipe book, a kitchen item, and gift cards for their grocery store. We hope to encourage home cooking and meet their need for food this Christmas.
If you are able, please sign up in the library to shop for a specific kitchen item or to purchase a grocery gift card as requested.
Items need to be here by Sunday, December 15th, unwrapped, at the church.
We will need volunteer to organize and deliver items on Monday, December 16th at 7:00pm.
Knitted scarves, hats, and mitts are also needed and can be added to the “Knitten Tree”.
