Riverside is participating in Lafayette Urban Ministry’s Jubilee Christmas. This is our community’s largest Christmas assistance program. On Saturday, December 12 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Riverside will become a Jubilee Toy Shop where low-income parents can select new toys for their children. We have 15 families with a total of 25 children we are buying gifts for this year.
Here is what you can do to help:
- Financial support—either to support a family ($70) or to buy toys for each child ($15-30). Checks can be made out to Riverside Covenant Church with Jubilee Christmas in the memo line.
- Shop for new toys for the 23 children ages 1 month to 12 years. Jubilee Christmas wants each child to receive three toys. You can choose a slip from the bulletin board in the back of the sanctuary (by the information table) that lists the age and gender of each child you want to shop for specifically. Each slip equals one toy. Then the unwrapped toys can be dropped off at the church at any time (that the church is open) and placed in 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 12, while they shop. A short meeting will be held after church on December 6 to go over the hosting details.
All toys and monetary support are due in to the church by Sunday, December 6.
