Christmas Gift Drives 2020
The holiday season is fast approaching and World Service will be hosting our annual Christmas Gift drives again this year, with some definite twists! Due to this crazy pandemic, all of the signups for our Christmas Drives will be virtual, using SignUp genius. There are several ways you can help, both with gift cards and personal shopping. We are hosting drives for the following organizations. When you signup for a gift/gift card on our online SignUp Genius tool, you will receive a confirmation email with specific instructions for shopping, wrapping, and drop-off locations. Each drive has their own requirements so we will make sure you have all the information you need. THANK YOU!
Operation Christmas Joy
Would you like to sponsor Christmas surprise boxes for foster/adoptive families caring for children in State care in NH? This is a great opportunity for families or groups to get together to sponsor a box too, where each person gets one item for the box so the box can be complete. Please use the SignUp Genius link below.
Family Promise Children
Interested in shopping for a special gift for a child in need? Family Promise of Southern NH (formerly Anne-Marie House) provides transitional housing for families experiencing homelessness. Each of these children has one special gift they would like this year from Santa - let's help make their dream come true! A special thank you to SHYG for wrapping these gifts on December 6th.
Crestwood Home Gift Drive
Every year Crestwood Nursing Home in Milford provides us with a Christmas gift wish list put together by their residents. For many of these seniors, these will be the only gifts they receive. Please consider choosing a resident and bring them some Christmas cheer this Advent season.
Gifts Due back December 5th. Gift Return Information:
Crestwood gifts should be returned unwrapped, in a gift bag with the name of the resident attached to the bag.
Family Promise/Anne-Marie House gifts should be returned unwrapped, with the child’s name/age attached to the item and gift wrap provided.
Operation Christmas Joy family box items just need to be returned unwrapped, with your name included so we know who has returned what items.
Drop off address information is included in your confirmation email. Questions? Contact Nancy Protzmann
SHARE Christmas Gift Drive
THANK YOU! All gift cards for SHARE have been chosen!
Last year SHARE served 422 children and many single adults through their Christmas drive – we are excited to help them again this year! SHARE has requested donations of gift cards this year. These will be used by the families to purchase the specific gifts. The World Service team has pre-purchased the gift cards through our SUCCESS program, to help both SHARE and the church at the same time!
