SPREAD SOME CHEER!
This holiday season, we are partnering with two organizations in our community by gathering items for those in need. Below are lists of items from each organization.
Thank you for continuing to give and show love to our community.

Dress up and costumes
- Toys should be small enough to fit in a backpack – The families EBC serves often have uncertain housing, so although large toys like rideable cars or a Barbie Dream Home seem like wonderful gifts, kids might not have a place to keep these.
- Toys should not require lots of batteries or a charger – The best toys are ones that can be taken out of the box and played with for as long as the child wishes.
- Toys should not be gift wrapped – EBC needs to check all toys to assure they are safe and age appropriate.
To learn more about EBC and what they do or to find your nearest drop-off location, go to www.babycorner.org
If you are unable to purchase and deliver items, you can donate funds below and the church will purchase and deliver the items for you!
