The Joy of Christmas

East Hill's Joy of Christmas Event

This year, on December 16th, East Hill Church will be hosting our THIRD ANNUAL Joy of Christmas event for East County families facing financial hardship during the holidays. In 2022, we were able to provide gifts for 456 children. The Joy of Christmas ensures that all of the children ages Birth-8th grade in our local communities have a gift to open on Christmas morning. We will be serving children from Section-8 housing, local public schools, refugees, children experiencing homeless, foster children and many others. Our goal this year is to provide 700 children with a gift and a stocking. These children are from Gresham, Troutdale, Fairview, Wood Village and Rockwood.  In order to do this, we will be partnering with the KGW Great Toy Drive, FOX 12 NEWS, Toys for Tots, East Hill Congregants, and community partners like yourself.
