COS 2012 Holiday Helper Outreach – Gail & Jane

Every year COS helps provide Christmas presents to families identified by Arlington Social Services that need help. Half of the each child’s list is clothing and the other half toys, books, games etc. Last year Gail and I got to deliver presents to two families and experience the joy that these gifts bring to these parents and children. One little girl’s eyes were huge! She said “are all of these presents for me???” The other family had just returned home from the hospital where they had had a baby the day before! The dad helped carry the presents in and said “you have no idea how much this means to us, thank you so much!”

We posted this year’s list for 3 families with a total of 6 children in the parish hall. Many items have already been signed up for but the following items are still needed. You can either call Helen, the church administrator, or email her to sign up, or you can sign up in the parish hall.

Presents are due by this Sunday, December 9th. When you deliver your wrapped gifts, be sure to identify which family, child, and gift is enclosed and put a check mark under the delivered column.
