The Joy of Christmas
December 17, 2022 12:00am
This year East Hill Church will be hosting our 2nd Annual Joy of Christmas event for East County families facing financial hardship during the holidays. It 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. Last year we were able to provide gifts and food for over 300 children. Our goal this year is to provide 700 gifts for children from our community. In order to do this, we will be partnering with KGW, FOX 12, Toys for Tots, East Hill Congregants, and community partners. Below are 6 ways you can get involved!
Note: A pastoral or counselor referral is needed to be a recipient of gifts.
