In the past we raised funds to support 5 charitable organizations in our area. There was a tree with envelopes attached from $1.00 to $100.00. You picked an envelope from the tree and over the summer you added cash to the envelope to meet the dollar amount on the envelope. Click on the attached links below to learn more about each organization. ALL money raised was split between these 5 wonderful organizations, each receiving a little over $1000.00 thanks to our generous donors.
The Sunday School children and adults wish to thank the members of the church for their generous donations for the "Holiday Hope Chests" project.
For 2016, 2017. 2018 and 2019 - The children packed 21 chests (shoeboxes) with age and gender appropriate gifts for the less fortunate children living in the Lehigh Valley. Also, thank you to the adults who wrapped the lids and bottoms of the shoeboxes. We greatly appreciated their accomplishment.
Our boxes will be distributed to LV Non-profit agencies serving children. "Holiday Hope Chests" is a new mission project for the Sunday School Children, and we are proud of your and their efforts.
