Once again, we will have a “Giving Tree” to help Warren County families at Christmas. We are working with Lutheran Services for gifts for families in need. We will also be working with the Indianola HOPE Foundation for monetary gifts.
In addition to wish list gifts, we would like to add some necessities for each family. These can be items such as personal hygiene products (soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, etc.), feminine hygiene products, laundry, and cleaning products. There will be a large box in the narthex for these donations.
Once you purchase your wish list gifts, please put the Family number on the gift. DO NOT WRAP the gifts. Place your gifts in Rooms 208/209 under the correct Family number by Wednesday, December 15. Gifts cannot be accepted past this date.
Cash donations will go to The Indianola HOPE Foundation. Please make checks payable to the Indianola HOPE Foundation (not Redeemer). HOPE does NOT accept gifts or gift cards—money only. Any gift cards will be given to the families through Lutheran Services.
