We're making an impact this holiday season. You can, too.
Donate gift cards or monetary donations through December 13
Giftmart is collecting donations in the form of financial gifts. In order to preserve dignity and provide a choice, families will be able to purchase gift cards at a discounted rate, with all the proceeds going back to their school to fund things like library books, computers, and musical instruments.
Time is a gift. Share yours by joining a Community Cares team.
While this time of social distancing can be overwhelming, let us not forget to do good and share with others (Heb 13:16). Click below for a list of opportunities to serve those in need. From praying to running errands, there is a Community Cares mobilizing team for you to contribute on. As you serve your community, spread the word by sharing photos and stories with #CommunityCares.
B.L.E.S.S. your community
Begin with prayer
Pray for your neighbors. Refer to BlessEveryHome.com and go on a prayer walk through your neighborhood.
Since you can’t go out and talk to people, utilize the news and social media. Ask, “What do you need?” in facebook groups, the nextdoor app, the patch, etc. and listen to needs mentioned in your local news.
Provide food via a food delivery app.
Social distancing regulations means we can serve others in creative ways: Write a thank you note to your local grocer, first responders, etc., share toilet paper or other supplies with your neighbors, call someone who may be lonely, buy groceries for your neighbor who can’t leave, invite people to join an online service & daily devotional, etc.
Let’s commit to sharing some good news! Use #BeTheChurch to share pictures and stories of acts of love and service.
Let us carry each other’s burdens. Let us serve the vulnerable, the lonely and the sick. Let us #BeTheChurch.
