A Giving Tree will reside in the church entrance starting the first week in November. The Giving Tree will have ornaments with information on gift needs for specific ages.
- After-worship Toy sales – if you don’t have time or just don’t know what to get - find something at the after-worship toy sales held in November outside the Sanctuary in the narthex.
- Amazon wish list. How easy is this? Place an order and have it shipped to the church. It’s that simple.
- There are drop-off bins around Edmonds as well at Harbor Square, Gravity Bar, Teri’s Toybox, Pancake Haus, and Walnut Street Coffee house.
- Each adult shopper is invited in by our youth for cookies and hot chocolate while they wait for a personal shopper to help them select a book for each child, a stuffed animal for each child, then they may choose a bike with a helmet or a new toy for each child as well. There are often “bonus-gives” like play-doh, beanie babies, scarves/gloves in addition to these gifts. When they finish shopping, they may select a Christmas decoration and wrapping paper with bows as they leave and our boy scout troop helps them take their gifts to their cars with some candy canes. The event is a blessing for all involved.
