SEASON OF GIVING

Holiday Giving Opportunities at GC

THE PLACE HOLIDAY HOUSE

This year Grace Chapel is again partnering with The Place of Forsyth County to help provide toys and gifts for children in need in our community. Families who meet poverty guidelines are able to register for assistance, and then "shop" in the Holiday House age-specific toy shops using a points system. Last year, The Place Holiday House helped provide joy for over 2000 children! We hope you'll let The Place Holiday House be your PURPOSE this holiday season!

Middle and high school students are typically the least provided for age group at The Place Holiday House. Please consider downloading the Holiday Gift Guide and donating items for teens this Christmas. You can download the Holiday Gift Guide HERE, or view their Amazon Wish List HERE.

AIM HOPE 4 THE FAMILY

GC is partnering with AIM (Atlanta Inner-City Ministry) in their Hope 4 the Family initiative again this holiday season.  AIM is a faith-based non-profit organization that provides much-needed resources to many in urban Atlanta who are living in poverty, struggling with addictions, and seeking spiritual guidance.
 
Our role in the Hope 4 the Family initiative is to purchase gift items that will be provided to families connected to AIM so that they can give these gifts to their children this Christmas.  There are almost 60 children on the list from AIM, and we are confident that we can get all of those children sponsored with the support of the GC family!

Here are a few specific details about the donations:
  • The target amount to spend on gift Items should total around $40-50 per child.
  • One "Wish List" item will be provided for each child based on what the family submitted on their application form.  (Another congregation is providing two gifts for each child as well.)
  • In addition to the one "Wish List" item, feel free to provide any additional toys, candy, clothing, hygiene items for the child as well.
  • Drop-off Day for donations to be returned to GC will be on Sunday, December 11.

If you, your family, and/or your Small Group would like to sponsor any children, please send an email to Addie Irwin (adelineirwin333@currently.com), the coordinator for Hope 4 the Family at GC, so that she can respond with the information for each child as well as a few other important details.
