Dear St. George’s Parish,
Christmas 2010 is just around the corner! Community Service is sponsoring the Lutheran Family Services Children’s Home and Foster Care Program beginning Nov. 7th – 28th. Please take a Christmas tag or two off the Tree and a child/children’s information from the manila envelope. Please return wrapped gift with label no later than Wed., Dec. 15th. Community Service asks you not spend more than $50.00 per child. Do not feel bound to purchase large ticket items, all kids dream big. However, if a child asks only for a pair of sox, please include a doll, teddy bear, a watch or a board game, to make their Christmas day special!
