Donate Christmas Gifts to Ministries

Posted on Dec 5, 2011 in Needs List, News |

As Christmas approaches, a number of Get Together Partner Ministries are gearing up for their annual Christmas outreach by providing gifts for the children they serve.  Most of them are facing a shortage.

 

This year is really challenging.  By now we would have received at least 500 toys to serve 700 children.  Right now, we are at 30 toys, 1 box at BBVA Compass Bank and much timber going up into the heavens to our merciful Lord.  Our program is December 17 and we have 500 children registered to attend.  – Barbara Irving, Executive Director, Project LIFT

 

This sentiment is echoed across the city, as ministries scramble to collect the needed toys.  Below is a description of what is needed for the Get Together Partner Ministries.  Would you consider providing toys/Christmas gifts for one of them?  Or if you don’t have time to shop and deliver the toys, would you consider a financial gift to one of these groups, designated for the purchase of toys?  Click here for contact information and the mailing address of our Get Together Partner Ministries.
