Volunteers Needed for Central’s Christmas Project

For many years, the Deacons at Central Presbyterian Church have organized a Christmas Project that provides an opportunity for the members and friends of Central to help families at Christmastime.  This year we plan to help 24 families.   This is only possible with the help of members and friends of Central Presbyterian Church.

There are several ways you can be part of a team that helps these families. You can be a team coordinator; making sure every one plays a part and making sure tasks are assigned. You can be a team member; shopping for food or gifts. You may feel unable to shop but want to give a donation. We are happy to have individuals  shop and be reimbursed for some or all of the costs depending on your personal resources. You and your family might like to be assigned one family by yourselves. We want everyone to feel that there is an opportunity to participate in this year’s Christmas Project.

There will be sign-up sheets in the Narthex after church next Sunday; however if it is easier to send us an e-mail please do. Please include your name, your phone number, a note saying how you would like to help and any other comments.
