Giving Tree a Success!

Thank you so very much for the congregation’s help in making Christmas that much better in someone’s life. We collected and delivered approximately 300 gifts to 7 agencies (Childhaven, Hopelink, Sound Mental Health, Snoqualmie Valley Senior Services, Olive Crest, Friends of Youth and PSKS) with an approximate value of $40 per tag. That is an incredible $12,000! As important – this project spans across our entire congregation. It was so much fun to watch as members of all ages took tags off the tree and brought back the gifts! Whether you took a tag and made the purchase or donated cash so the team could go shopping for you, we are so grateful for your generosity. We hope you had as much fun as we did! We supported families, children, elders, young adults and those struggling with mental health.
In addition to our ministry team members – a special thank you to Mitra Khubcher for being a weekly Christmas Tree Elf. Special thanks to delivery elves Bruce and Jean Sillers to Hopelink.
Thank you one and all for bringing a bit of joy to someone’s life. We look forward to participating again next year! Look for the tree on November 11, 2018! If you would like to join the ministry team, please notify one of the following.
