The Angel Tree Committee thanks the members of St. Paul for your generous response to the project this year.
With your support, we collected approximately $1,515 in donations for our community. We were able to donate roughly $75 in diapers, diaper cream, and wipes to Harrison County Home and Public Health. Longview Nursing Home residents will benefit from 30 pairs of slipper socks, hand sewn scarves, and 8 wheelchair cup holders. Christmas gifts will be provided to children of four local families (13 individuals). Selected families with children enrolled in the Missouri Valley School District will receive your donations of themed gift baskets, $105 in gift cards to local restaurants, and $25 to Little Threads clothing store. With extra monetary donations, St. Paul will pay a monthly utility bill for chosen families in Missouri Valley. What a feat!
Melissa, Jen, and Tracey thank you all for being flexible with the new format of the Angel Tree. We were able to lend a helping hand to so many people in the community and couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you for making this project a success in such an unpredictable year and continuing the congregation’s mission to reach out to those in need.
