GIFTS FROM THE HEART
GIFTS FROM THE HEART IS COMING! November 8 through November 29
The 26th year for this program is going to look a little different due to COVID-19 restrictions, but our congregation is still going to provide holiday gifts to the following organizations in our community: Operation Give Back (support Sycamore Schools & Evendale Elementary), Wesley Chapel Mission Center, Wesley Education Center, York Street United Methodist Church, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
This is a wonderful way for your family to bless children in our community this Christmas season and share our love of Jesus. In 2019, our congregation provided 604 gifts to 352 children with a value of over $17,000.
Given the even greater needs of our community due to COVID-19, COS United Methodist Women are going to collect cash donations, gift cards, and backpacks for these organizations. In the midst of a pandemic, our aim is to make Gifts from the Heart contactless, safe, and simple for everyone, including our organizations that are overwhelmed with additional restrictions at this time.
