Angel Tree Project
Saint Andrew
and Holy Communion
All Gifts Due by December 17

       Pastor Suzanne has found a family who needs our help to have a happy, joyous Christmas this year.   The goal is to put smiles on their faces by providing specific gifts for the three young children to fulfill those special wishes.  The children are Sayire (boy), age 5; Amor’e (girl), age 3; and Angel (girl), age 2.  We also want to provide some general items for the children and their mother, Connie.  Gift tags for specific requests and general gifts have been prepared.  If you want to help, please select a gift tag and sign your name on the gift log so we can account for who is buying which gift(s).  You may take more than one tag if you would like to buy more than one gift. 

      Some of the specific gift requests have sample photos attached to the tags.  These are suggestions to give you ideas; you do not have to purchase exactly what is pictured.  If you prefer to give more general items or stocking stuffers, please pick age appropriate games, books, puzzles, etc.  Please be sure to include batteries if the toy you purchase requires batteries.

      Appropriate gifts for the mother will include: lotions, soaps, soft blanket/throw, socks, kitchen towels, teas, chocolates, coffee mug, manicure set, robe (size large), nice gloves, scarf, gift cards for groceries, etc.

      Please attach the gift card to the gift you purchase and return to either SA or HC by SUNDAY, DECEMBER 17. The gifts may be wrapped. Note that gift bags are ideal so that the items may be easily identified in case a tag is lost. Thank you for your support. 


Angel/Warmth Tree

      This year St. Andrew is expanding our Angel Tree to include Mittens, Gloves, and Scarves to help some of our disadvantaged local people stay warm in the coming months.  Please bring the aforementioned items and hang them on the branches.  They will be distributed over the Christmas Holidays.
