We have many families right here in the Tuckahoe community who are struggling to make ends meet and to provide Christmas for their children.  The Welborne Community is invited to reach out with Christ’s love to help someone in need in our neighborhood this Christmas. We are partnering with Ridge Elementary School’s Counseling Department as well as our Food Pantry to identify families in need.  How can you take part?

  • Angels have appeared in the hallway in Nave Hall by the parking lot breezeway.
  • Choose your angel from the wall, and write your name and phone number by the corresponding number on the master list on the podium next to the angels, so we know whose angel you have.  Each child we are serving has two angels–one for clothing and one for toys.
  • Then, go shopping for the gift(s) on the angel.  All gifts are due back at church by Dec. 3, unwrapped, and with the angel number CLEARLY WRITTEN on the bag which contains the gifts.
  • Join us for a wrapping party on Sunday, December 10 from 12-2 after church–lunch will be provided.
  • Gifts will be delivered December 12.  We could use people that morning with small or large SUV’s to transport the gifts.

Many people ask for a guideline of how much to spend.  We suggest $25-50.
