St. Paul’s Christmas Outreach Update

We had seven children to “adopt” between the  Chester family and Safe Homes. 
We have two children left
-boy in 10th grade, size 14-16,
-boy in 9th grade, size  18-20
As far as clothes they would like dress shirts, t-shirts, hoodie  sweatshirts, sweatpants (no elastic at the bottom).  They asked for some  things for the whole family also so we will use the contributions received to  get family gift cards, etc.  So it just would be a matter of buying clothes.  Please budget around $20-$25 for that so that all the children  get equal gifts.  If you are interested in adopting one of them please let Marie Olsen know by 11/30 so we have time to buy anything not covered.  We need the  items (unwrapped) put in a bag with the child’s grade to the church by  12/07.
If anyone else is  interested in a monetary contribution the deadline for that is 11/30 so we know  how much we have to work with.
The Kiwanis toy drive deadline is also 12/07.  There is a box designated for that in the guild  room.
And as a reminder the Kiwanis are also collecting gently used outerwear any size as the parents need outerwear also.
Thank you to all who have adopted or contributed to this.
