The Giving Tree - Youth In Need


The need for warm clothing amongst Quincy's Youth in Need population is great this year. Leslie Bridson, the City of Quincy's Homeless Student Coordinator, has asked if our congregation could again support these children during this Christmas season.  The Outreach Ministry committee will set up a "Giving Tree" in the Sanctuary starting November 26th. The tree will be decorated with ornaments which show the name, age, warm clothing requested and size of one Youth In Need; one Youth per ornament.  If you are able, please take an ornament form the tree and purchase an item or two listed on the ornament. Please drop off your wrapped gift or gifts with ornament attached at the Church office on or before Sunday, December 10.  The gifts are delivered to each Youth personally by Leslie.

 Leslie will be speaking to us about her work on Sunday, November 19th and the impact our gifts make on these children.

Please see Jean Wilson if you have any questions, or call me at 617.698.1646.  Thank you from your Outreach Ministry!!
