“Christmas For All” for Code Purple Guests

posted in: Outreach | 0

        “Christmas For All”  is going to be held at Calvary Baptist Church on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Calvary is opening its  doors at 4 PM Christmas Eve and plans to serve a Christmas Eve Feast to all homeless or displaced persons who accept the invitation.   They will stay overnight there and be served a hot breakfast on Christmas Day and Santa will visit with gifts at 9 AM.  In order for this to happen, all the participating churches in Newark, will need to step up.   

Here are some things you could provide:   FOOD:   ham, turkey, beef, sides, desserts and canned sodas.   Egg casseroles or pastries (in disposable pans).  Lunch meat, rolls, individual chip bags.   GIFTS:  $10 gift cards to Wawa or McD, insulated gloves, warm socks, hand warmers, new underwear – all types and sizes, LED flashlights.  WORKERS:   They are very grateful for 1 hour, 4 hours… of your help.   

IF you can help out, give Tom Parkins a call to volunteer:  302-731-8193 (home) or 302-465-2070 (cell).   There will be a box in the great hall, on the window side, labeled  “Christmas For All”.   I will take it over to Calvary on the 23rd of Dec at noon.   Please have any donations in it by that time.   If you would like to donate something that needs refrigeration, put it in the church frig and mark it:    “Christmas For All”, and  I will take that as well.   If you have questions, please call me.

             MANY Blessings for being the hands and feet of Jesus,  in Newark,
