Riverside is participating in Lafayette Urban Ministry’s Jubilee Christmas. This is our community’s largest Christmas assistance program. On Saturday, December 11th, 10 a.m-12 p.m., Riverside will become a Jubilee Toy Shop where parents can select new toys for their children. We have 15 families with a total of 35 children we are buying gifts for.
Here is what you can do to help:
- Financial support—either to support a family ($55) or to buy toys for each child ($15-30). Checks can be made out to Riverside CC with Jubilee Christmas in the memo line.
- Shop for new toys for the 35 children age 1 month-12 years. Jubilee Christmas wants each child to have 3 toys. You can take a slip off the bulletin board in the back by the information table that has the age and gender of the child you want to shop for. (Yes, there are more…our mistake. We did 1 per child, but we needed 3 per child, so we are 1/3 of the way there.) Each slip equals one toy. You can drop off the toys at the church at any time (that the church is open) into the boxes that are labeled by gender and age.
- Sign up at the information table in the back of the sanctuary to host a family on Saturday, December 11th while they shop. A short meeting will be held after church on December 5th to go over the details of hosting.
All gifts and financial support is due in to the church by Sunday, December 5th.
