Christmas with Dignity
Christmas with Dignity is our annual food assistance program for our friends in Ironton. The event take place in Ironton on Saturday, Dec. 9. We are committed to help provide 500 boxes of a week’s worth of frozen meat, vegetables and side dishes to serve a family of four. We are partnering with St. Paul’s Lutheran Church to achieve this goal. The price of one box is about $32.
Your help is needed! Beginning on Nov. 12, stop by the “Giving Tree’ and help yourself to an ornament. The ornaments will have a dollar amount attached. Choose one that matches what you would like to give. Of course you are not limited to donating the amounts on the ornaments. We appreciate donations of any size! You can also donate online here.
We also need to send 10 to 12 volunteers to Ironton to help with the giveaway. Most of the recipients are unable to lift and carry the boxes of food and other items available that day to their cars without assistance.
If you would like to participate, please sign up on the sheet on the table under the bulletin board in the coatroom hallway, beginning Nov. 12. Sign-up sheets for cookies to take to Ironton will also be on the table.
A huge thank you goes out to our Hunger Task Group for organizing this event, preparing the ornaments and decorating our Giving Tree.
