Cabbage Patch Christmas Ministry
Cabbage Patch Christmas 2019
Your Cabbage Patch Christmas Team met and made the decision to continue our Christmas support with clothing, toys and groceries for 20 families, which is about 70 people. The Cabbage Patch has informed us that shopping for clothing with the mother’s assistance immensely helps the needs of the growing children. With this in mind, we also decided to increase the amount of money we provide for each individual when we shop at Burlington with the mothers for clothing and housewares. Food provided in baskets sustains the families when the children are out of school during Christmas break.
This amount for our shoppers at Burlington will be $75 per person.
The amount for groceries will be $40 per person.
We pray that this will encourage the families to know the Holy Spirit’s presence in a new way.
