Once again this Christmas season, there is a simple but beautiful and helpful way to see that as many children as possible within our community have a Christmas present(s). This year, our Salvation Army Tree contains 100 names of local boys and girls for whom you have the privilege of making a brighter Christmas as well as meeting the challenge of putting your faith into action.
Simply take a tag from the tree and buy the child an appropriate gift; each tag contains the information you will need to buy a present along with something the child is wishing for. There is also a list below for suggestions by age group.
Please bring your unwrapped gift back to the church with the angel gift tag affixed to it and place under the tree. PLEASE RETURN ALL GIFTS TO THE CHURCH BY SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11TH.
If you have any questions, please call Tom or Arlene Malanga at 732-686-9672. On behalf of the many children for whom Christmas will be brighter because of YOU, we say thank you and God bless you for being an angel!
