Please donate newly used items for the purpose of demonstrating the true meaning of Christmas to children: to share Christ's love to one another. Your donations give children an opportunity to purchase items for family and friends at bargain prices. We also need tissue paper, newspaper, Scotch tape, markers, price stickers, and assorted sizes of gift bags. The deadline for submitting newly used items and/or other supplies is Thursday, December 7th.  

Angel Tree Gifts
In the true spirit of Christmas, you can help others have a little something extra this year to make their holiday bright.  The Angel Tree is in the Parish Hall waiting for donors to match to families in need.  All you do is take a tag from the tree.  The tag you choose has the information you need to buy presents for the person for whom the tag was filled out.  Wrap your gift and tape the entire tag to the top of your package.  Also, please put unwrapped household items from family tags in a bag and attach the tag.  The deadline for delivering your gifts is Sunday December 17.

Monetary donations are always welcome and should be taken to the Parish office.  Checks should be made out to Shrewsbury Parish Church Outreach Program.  Thanks so much for your help.  Margaret Cummings, 302-540-8407      Carol Orange, 410-708-0788
