Cabbage Patch Christmas Ministry 2018
Join us this year in these activities for our Cabbage Patch Christmas project. For as Christ said, “Whatever you do for the least of these you do for me.” Checks can be made out to Harvey Browne Presbyterian Church through December with “Cabbage Patch Christmas” on the memo line.
Explanation of each project for Cabbage Patch Christmas
Shopping Day – Nov. 10 meet at Burlington in Bashford Manor at 8:30 AM. We partner with Cabbage Patch adults to shop for their families. Our monetary donations help to buy clothing for our families. Sign up with Heather Drake starting Oct. 14 until shopping day. It is a great time with the Mom’s.
Wrapping Room – Our wrapping room, headed by Laura Krausen, is located in room 209 behind Eline Hall. Each Wednesday evening after dinner beginning Nov. 14 we will be wrapping the gifts bought at Burlington and labeling them by family.
Parents Day Out – They will be collecting snack food for the baskets. Check with Julie Rousseau.
Grocery Cart – Our grocery cart during November and early December will accept these items; products not covered by food stamps such as paper goods, soap products for kitchen, laundry and bathroom. Questions, ask Wilma and Fred Bennett.
Christmas Tree Gift Tags – Starting Nov. 18 come to the foyer find the small Christmas Tree and choose a gift tag with a child’s name and interests. Buy a gift for that child then bring it back to the church no later than Dec. 9 wrapped with the tag attached to the package. Look for Anne Hughes.
Grocery Sorting – On Friday evening, December 14, at 6 PM groceries and donations will be sorted in Emory (gym) for our 20 families. This is a fun evening with the Mariners organizing all of us who can come to help. Wrapped gifts will be taken from room 209 to the gym. Families are welcome to help.
Delivery Day – December 16 after the 10:00 worship service those who have signed up to help deliver the baskets will come to Emory (gym). Baskets will be delivered directly to the families homes wishing them a very Merry Christmas and God’s blessings. This is a meaningful family project. You will need a vehicle and will get instructions and directions when you get to the gym. Sign up with Bob Smith.
