Shoe Box Gifts for Neighbors in Need or Crisis
"A mother came to the emergency room on Christmas Eve. I asked her if she was ready for Christmas. "Well, as ready as I can be." She said she really didn't have money to buy presents for her children this year. I was able to pack up a gift for each child; even a soft new fleece blanket for her 4 month old baby. There were tears of gratitude and relief in her eyes as she accepted the gifts for her children." Bellin Hosptial ER Nurse
91.9/91.5 The Family's 17th annual ‘Christmas Care’ event will supply 40 local crisis agencies and emergency rooms with Christmas gifts for people in crisis. The goal of Christmas Care is to reach out with the love of Jesus Christ and to joyfully give hurting people a tangible reminder that we (their neighbors) remember them and care for them, and so does God.
November 15 - December 9, 2014.
The 91.9/91.5 The Family listening area. Crisis agencies and hospitals in the Fox Cities, Green Bay, Oshkosh, Fond du Lac, Shawano, Oconto, Two Rivers, Chilton and Sheboygan receive these gifts.
Fill a shoe box with NEW gifts such as toys, dolls, games, mittens, or candy for someone in need. (Something warm, something fun, something useful, something yummy!) Bring filled boxes to participating Festival Foods Stores, Pet Supplies "Plus" in Appleton, Culver's Frozen Custard in Darboy and Little Chute, or our studios in Appleton. Flier including gift suggestions
Teen boys and adult men are often forgotten at Christmas. We made a special point to ask listeners to prepare gifts for men and teens containing warm hats, gloves, socks and hats, and maybe a jumbo candy bar or electronic game. Last year we were able to fill all of the special orders for teens and men, thank you!
Thank you for helping us deliver 'comfort and joy' to our neighbors in crisis this Christmas. God bless you!
