How can you Serve others This holiday season?
Great question! We have partnered with the following organizations to give back:
Food Drive • 1 food drive, 2 drop off dates, 3 beneficiaries
Pick up a bag and grocery list at the Welcome Center. Then, return your filled bag on Nov 25th or Dec 9th. Food will be distributed to Lighthouse Christian Ministries, Whitcomb Elementary, and Space Center Intermediate to help supplement families with children home for two weeks over Christmas break, as well as restock food pantries depleted from Thanksgiving.
Operation Christmas Blessing • Anchor Point
Celebrate and encourage Anchor Point families who are honoring life, by blessing them with Christmas gifts from a wish list. All items we are collecting are available for purchase by clicking on this AMAZON WISH LIST.
Christmas Store (3 Wishes) • Whitcomb Elementary School
On December 13th, the Whitcomb Cafeteria will turn into a winter wonderland of presents provided by Gloria Dei! We’ll gather toys to build a Christmas Store that allows parents/caregivers the opportunity to come shop for the children they’re caring for at much reduced prices. This creates ownership for the presents that the parents are giving to their children on Christmas morning. Volunteers will be needed to transport presents and help man the store. Please click on this AMAZON WISH LIST to see what you can purchase to help build our Christmas store.
Gift Cards for Teens • Space Center Intermediate School
Purchase a gift card at the Welcome Center through Day One Christian Academy, or pick up a list of the items to buy, and they will be delivered to Space Center Intermediate before Christmas. Gift Cards will be to stores that do not sell general merchandise like cigarettes and alcohol. Examples of stores includes Best Buy, Sephora and TJ Maxx. You can also write a Christmas note for the gift card recipient.
Furniture Delivery Day • High Socks for Hope
Let’s break a record and get as many Harvey families as possible back in their homes before Christmas. Join us on Sunday, December 9th at 1pm at Peace Lutheran Church in Texas City to start delivering furniture. Sign up at the Welcome Center.
