The why: Holiday Care and Share is being organized to address the needs of those Sugar Creek Elementary families within the “gap” of not qualifying for assistance with other agencies. These families on the fringe might be barely making ends meet normally, but with holidays they might find themselves stretched to provide gifts or additional meals for the children who are home for Winter Break.
The Who: With Sugar Creek’s assistance, several of these families have been identified and these families have been asked to refer an additional family or person in need. As a church family we can help ease the gap between just “making ends meet” and having a holiday celebration.
The How: Since the Frosty’s Gift Shoppe program isn’t feasible for COVID protocols, this Holiday Care and Share is designed to be for the adults of the family to make an appointment on Friday December for selecting items to assist in their holiday needs.
Based on a needs list that the family fills out ahead of time with the school representative, we’ll have the items ready for the pick-up but, additionally, there will be “stations” for the adults to visit to gather items that may ease cost of food and supplies for the holiday break, such as:
Where we come in:
We need volunteer help and donations of needed supplies:
Wrap / Cards
Stocking Stuffer sized fun items:
The Mission Committee will be supplementing the shopping of the items on lists, including a $25.00 Meijer gift card for the adults to use for unknown needs. We’ll be collecting donations of items for the additional stations.
