Shoe Box Gifts for Neighbors in Need or Crisis

"One of our residents told me she was feeling heartbroken and anxious; living in a shelter, alone and without family at Christmas time. When we gave her the Christmas Care gift she was literally speechless, but tears were streaming down her face so I just hugged her and told her that a lot of people really do care about her.  She said she hadn't received a gift from anyone for about 5 years. I can't thank you enough for helping our staff provide for people who are so in need of a gift and some kind words of compassion. I am so proud to be part of such a caring community where we all work together to help people in need. -Ann F., Emergency Shelter of the Fox Valley
 
"Best of" stories and thank you notes from recipients
 
 WHAT:
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. 
 

WHEN:

November 15 - December 9, 2014.
 

WHERE:

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.
 

HOW:

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
 

NOTE:

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!
