We will once again be partnering with Bethel Church in Garfield Park to celebrate the good news of Christmas by providing gift items including toys (boys love the Marvel action figures and girls love the Barbie and Disney princess dolls of color) and books by authors of color(Amazon has a great selection) for children 5-12, coats for school age kids (being remote for a full year most of the children have long outgrown their March 2020 coats), household and personal items for seniors( towels, pillows, throws, crockpots, utensils, dishes), and gift cards ($25 from Target or Walmart) for teens and grocery purchases. Gifts may be purchased by selecting an ornament (brown teddy bear) from the tree and returning the unwrapped gift to the church by December 7 for transport to Bethel. Gifts (of the giver's choosing) may also be purchased online and sent directly to Bethel Church by December 7 at the following address:
Attn: V. Starr
8517 S. Drexel Ave.
Chicago, IL 60619
**Gift cards should be delivered to the church and/or placed in the collection plate) in an envelope labeled Bethel by December 7.
