The top tag with the string on it needs to be placed on your gift when you bring it back on the 18th.  Please bring these gifts back wrapped with the tag attached from the bulletin board.   


We will also have a food donation signup sheet for these families. Monetary donations can be put in with offering marked as Adopt a Family. If you have any questions, please see Caitlyn Brinkman.
