Please bring an unwrapped gift in a white bag, to lay before the crèche.
As you shop for Christmas in the coming weeks, please keep in mind our upcoming White Gifts collection ~ Sunday, December 9. As in previous years, this year's gifts will be given to Community Giving Tree and Emmaus House to benefit the families they serve. Some gift suggestions/needs:
Baby Items: Diapers & wipes, baby bottles & nipples, snowsuits, PJs
Children's Items: Simple toys (no batteries), children's books in English and Spanish, PJs, school supplies (pens, paper, markers)
Adults, Children, Family: Shampoo, soup, shaving cream & razors, hand cream, toothbrushes and toothpaste, fleece blankets, towels, twin bedding, pillows, fleece jackets and pullovers, warm socks, underwear, mittens, hats, gloves
Gift Certificates: for supermarkets, gas stations, and clothing stores
Traditionally these gifts have been brought to Church wrapped in white paper. Emmaus House has said that it helps their sorting and distribution process if items are unwrapped and in bags. If possible, please bring your items in white gift bags to be placed around the manger on Sunday morning. Your generosity is appreciated; your love is felt.
