Once again let's share the Reason for the season with children who desperately need to know that people love them and care for them. As we celebrate the Hope which came from our Savior's birth, let us reach out and share this Hope with the precious children of Haiti by participating in our 3rd Annual Christmas for Haiti Project. Simply fill a gallon freezer zipper bag with the items listed below, and put a smile on the face and Hope in the heart of a child in Haiti.
Tips For Filling Your Freezer Bag
Decide whether your gift bag will be for a boy or a girl and choose a category (2-4; 5-7; 8-12). Please indicate on the bag boy/girl and age group. Gather small toy and gifts to fill your bag (see suggestions below.) Use new gallon size zipper bags. Please do not send large toys separate from bags.
Optional: Decorate the outside of the bag with markers or stickers. You may enclose a note and photo of yourself or family for the child that will receive your gift bag.
This is a real fun time for your kids.
