SJCC- It’s the Season of Sharing!

At holiday time, there are many opportunities to help those in our community who are struggling. The Social Justice Coordinating Committee will have information about some of these available for the next few Sundays:
  • Gifts for Parents: New or gently used items suitable as a gift for an adult are needed (i.e.  kitchen items, tools, car gadgets, costume jewelry, Hawkeye items, wallets, or flashlights). If you’re available to help, set-up will be on Friday, December 5th at St. Marks Methodist. Volunteers are also needed on Saturday, December 6th to escort kids to select gifts for the adults in their lives and to help get them wrapped.
  • Homeless Children’s Trust Christmas Shopping & Party: They need toys for ages 0-17, caps, gloves, mittens, scarves, puzzles, books and games etc.  This event is also on Saturday, December 6th. If you’re  able to help, they can use help with stuffing stockings, child care while parents shop, gift wrapping, party prep and clean-up etc.
  • Circle of Friends: We’ll have information about the needs of our two immigrant families soon. This has previously included clothing, gift cards for groceries & gasoline, etc.
  • Project Holiday: We have information about how to help provide holiday dinner ingredients for those in need soon.
  • Elder Services: They provide a prepared holiday meal etc. for home-bound individuals. We have information on how to help with this.
Information about these opportunities and more will be at the Social Justice Table in Channing Hall during coffee hour on Sundays, November 23rd and 30th. Please stop by!
