You can help children and young people have a brighter Christmas when you visit CoH’s own Giving Tree beginning Sunday, November 26 through December 17. The tree will be hung with ornaments, and on the back of each ornament you will find a Christmas wish that you can fulfill. There are three categories of wishes this year – gifts for Maple Lawn School children and their classrooms, Hernandez Elementary School, and ministries of our own Cathedral of Hope, including iCare and Bach.
For Maple Lawn Elementary students, you will find things from the Santa lists of these underserved children. These are children who would have little Christmas at all without the kindness of others. You’ll also find some special wishes from Maple Lawn teachers for classroom supplies and curriculum materials they long for, but for which there is no budget. Hernandez Elementary School may be asking for help with school uniforms for students.
Cathedral of Hope ornaments on the Giving Tree will include items for well-loved ministries such as BACH or iCare, or specific needs of our children’s program, music and television ministries, and other ways that CoH impacts our community and members.
The Giving Tree will be up and ready for “shopping” right after Thanksgiving. Gift cards will be available this year if you’d like to dedicate your Giving Tree purchase to someone in lieu of a Christmas gift.
