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.
