The Joy of Christmas
December 18, 2021 12:00am
This Christmas, East Hill is serving local families who are facing financial hardship during the holidays. This special event, called The Joy of Christmas, will ensure that parents experience the joy of watching their children open a gift on Christmas. We will be serving families from Section-8 housing, local public schools, refugees, foster families and many more children in need. Our goal this year is to provide 700 gifts for children from our community. Below we've listed the 5 ways you can get involved!
Note: A pastoral or counselor referral is needed to be a recipient of gifts.
5 Ways You Can Get Involved:
1. Donate brand new gifts or gift cards for children 0-12 (valued around $25). Pick up a GIFT TAG from the foyer and select your age range you'll be shopping for. Another way for you to shop is through our Amazon Wish List. Gifts can be purchased online at easthill.org/christmasjoy and shipped directly to East Hill Church. Toys and gift cards need to be received by Sunday, December 12th.
2. Host a Toy/Gift Drive at your business for brand new, unwrapped gifts for youth ages 0-12 (valued around $25). Please contact us for pick-up and drop-off options. We would like to receive the gifts no later than December 12th.
