Calvary Christmas Project 2019

Since 1975 Calvary has been helping Lexington families celebrate the joy of Christmas! We are so excited for the outreach opportunities provided by the Christmas Project. Please see below for all the important dates, volunteer opportunities, and ways to contribute to Calvary’s Christmas Project.

Donations

On December 21 st the Calvary Christmas Project families are invited to shop for clothing, toys and household items when they come to receive their food and gift boxes. Your “gently used” children’s toys, housewares and clothing are very much appreciated by these families. Clothing should be laundered, in good repair, and placed on wire hangers . Toys should be clean and undamaged. Small games and puzzles need to be bagged; complete with no missing pieces. Household items, electronics, furniture and appliances must be clean and in working order.

Also needed are new packages of underwear and socks for all ages. Disposable diapers and Pull-up training pants are also requested.

Donations may be dropped off in the basement of Calvary’s Education Building 2 now through December 18th .

With donations already coming in, we need volunteers on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:30 pm to help with sorting and organizing in the EB 2 basement. Contact Missy Sanders with questions about donations and sorting help at 859-948-7896 or via email.

Sorters for Donated Items

Gift Wrappers

Gift wrapping will begin December 4th in the EB2 Basement. We need groups representing the Deacons, Youth, College Ministry, Sunday School Classes, and the Women’s Ministry to pick a time to help wrap the children’s “Wish List” gifts. We will wrap on Wednesday and Sunday evenings starting at 6pm. We are also in need of tissue paper and boxes!
