CHRISTMAS AROUND TOWNE
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9
8:00 AM - 2:00 PM
The holiday season is just around the corner and the Christmas Around Towne planning team is already busy at work preparing for another incredible event! On December 9th, Powerhouse Ministries, Lakeside Church and approximately 40 churches and civic groups will partner together to provide a Christmas experience for hundreds of families in our community who may have a difficult time providing a holiday experience on their own.
Last year at Christmas Around Towne, 450 volunteers from 56 churches, civic groups and businesses served 990 people! Everyone enjoyed a beautiful holiday brunch complete with local entertainment and then invited to “shop” for Christmas gifts. Afterward, they took home a holiday meal basket. This year, Lakeside church is hosting the event, and there are a variety of ways you can get involved.
We are offering child care for the guests and are looking for loving hands to care for the children while the parents shop.
We will need several people to work on the day of the event. There are opportunities to help in each of the "stores" in the mall, as well as help serve brunch, greet and direct our guests, and assist in set-up and clean-up. Lakeside Church will be heading up the Toy Store, and other local churches and organizations will be heading up the various other stores and services in the mall.
Lakeside is responsible for providing the toy store.
1,500 toys are needed ranging from $5 to $40
We are looking for new items still in the box or with the label attached.
Toys can be dropped off in the back of the auditorium during weekend gatherings, or at our front office during the week.
SUGGESTED TOYS ARE:
Craft Set Gifts
We are also accepting gift cards and cash donations that we will use to purchase items. You can drop donations in our offering basket during weekend gatherings with C.A.T. written on the check or envelope, or donate directly through our giving site through the link below. Thank you for your generosity!DONATE
Pray for the Christmas Around Towne event, families and team.
