Mom’s Group & Alyssa’s Bedtime Stories: A Great Partnership

The Mom’s Group would like to thank everyone who helped make this year’s small group project a huge success! Because of the generosity of the congregation, Thrivent Financial, and the help of the families who volunteered on the pizza/packing night, we were able to pack over 100 gift bags for local children in need.

Each gift bag included a pair of pajamas, warm socks or slippers, a toothbrush and toothpaste, age appropriate books, and a toy or stuffed animal.

Lilian, the mother of Alyssa, was able to attend our packing night with her two youngest children and told us the story of how the non-profit was started and the various children who they have been able to help over the years. Many of the bags we packed will be helping families in the Lancaster area this holiday season. Thank you to every single person who helped in any way to make it a success-big or small, you helped make it happen!

Because this congregation is so generous, and numerous larger toy gifts were donated, we were also able to help a local family in the Donegal community, and donate several stuffed animal toys to the Donegal Primary School for their Toys for Tots collection. We still have some toys leftover that we will donate as the need arises. THANK YOU for your kindness and for helping to make the holiday season a little brighter for kids in our community.
