This year our Project Toy Drive will be a little bit different. We are teaming up with our Covenant-to-Care Social Worker to provide Christmas gifts to children in the Hartford area. The presents that we purchase will be the only presents that many of the children receive. We have a list of 50 children to provide gifts for. Each child has one gift request. The name, gender, age and request for the child will be printed on an ornament that can be taken off of a Giving tree that will be located in Chapin Hall. Please take the ornament, purchase the gift and bring the wrapped gift with the ornament attached to church on December 9th. We will bless the gifts and present them to our DCF social worker. Please see Kari McCaw-Blaise (email@example.com) for questions or if you want to purchase a present and the ornament tree is empty.
