This year we, as a church, are again providing gifts and meals for some of those in need from Riverdale Elementary School. I will have a little tree with first names, age and gender on little cards which you can take and sign for and purchase a gift between $15 and $30 for the child. The tree will be at church Sundays December 1st, 8th and 15th and also at the Christmas Fair on Saturday Dec 7th. If you buy something at the Christmas Fair I will have wrapping paper there for you to wrap the present otherwise please bring the wrapped gifts to the church by Sunday December 15th or deliver them to the church before December 19th. Call the church office (301-864-4328) first to make sure someone will be there to accept the gifts. I will be taking them down to the school on December 20th, the last day of school for Prince George’s County. Extra gifts would be welcome, put an age range and gender on the wrapped gift.
For the family meals we will be accepting non- perishable contributions on December 1st, 8th,15th and 22nd or a cash donation would also be welcome as we will be buying some perishable goods too before we deliver them to the families (we have 6 families from the school) probably on December 23rd. Any questions, call me Jenny Prince at 301-864-1071.
