The Gift of Love serves over 300 local families by allowing them to purchase new, discounted gifts for their children. This allows parents to have dignity and pride in providing an affordable Christmas for their family.
Because of COVID, we’ve had to change the format of this event, but we’re still committed to making sure that this Christmas is a special one for these families, as it’s perhaps more needed this year than ever before. What we really need is for you to set aside a bit of extra money to go shopping for a new Christmas gift (or a few!), and bring them by your Woodmen Campus the weekend of Dec. 5 and 6. At each campus that weekend, we’ll have volunteers and staff there to greet you in a drive-up-and-drop-off donation line, making it really easy to be a part of the event. How cool would it be if, instead of traffic jams after a weekend service, we had one because our congregation was so generous in dropping off new Christmas gifts?!
