Christmas Toy Drive Through Friday, December 13: We are collecting new, unwrapped Christmas presents for the children in two Outreach programs we support in East Harlem: Little Sisters of the Assumption, Steps to End Family Violence, and Escalera. For many years, the generosity of CHR parishioners has been an important part of Christmas for children who have been displaced from their homes, are living in at-risk situations, or who have an incarcerated parent.
Gifts are needed for children in ages as follows;
1 month to 12 months: 15 Girls 21 Boys
1 to 2 yrs 20 girls 32 Boys
2 to 3 yrs 28 girls 25 Boys
3 to 4 yrs 8 girls 11 Boys
Please purchase an appropriate gift, and help make a child’s Christmas more joyful. Please do not wrap gifts. If you would prefer to contribute to this effort by writing a check to CHR (please write “Toy Drive” in the memo line of the check), We will shop for you. All toys and checks must be at the church no later than December 13 in order to distribute the gifts to the agencies in time for their Christmas celebrations. If you have any questions, please contact Leslie Rupert at 212 595 7984 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
