Outreach Community Ministries Christmas Store

By November 15, 2018 No Comments

Each year hundreds of low income families shop for donated Christmas gifts at the Outreach Christmas Store. The donated gifts are new and for sale at a large discount so that parents can afford to purchase a Christmas gift for their child. You can participate in several ways.

Hats: help us collect 1000 new winter hats for kids in need. Take a bag from one of the Christmas trees around the church and fill it with three kid-sized winter hats; gloves/mittens are welcome too.

Gifts: if you would like to give a gift to a child, take an ornament from the tree with gift ideas or shop on Amazon. Search “Outreach Community” under “lists” or follow this link: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2JFMC64S9UDF7

Serving: can you help serve at the Outreach Christmas Store, handing out hats and other necessities on December 8 at Outreach Community Center in Carol Stream? Set up help is also needed on December 7. If you can participate either day, contact Bob Duncan at bduncanwheaton@gmail.com.
