Opportunity to Make a Difference

We are gearing up, once again, for Alexandria’s Toy Drive, and there are many ways that you can serve in this ministry.
First of all, the Ladies’ Committee will be assembling food boxes and they need your help in gathering the food. ***Items needed are listed below.

Secondly, you can plan to be here December 12-16 to visit with those families that come to receive food and toys. Some
families also appreciate help wrapping their gifts before taking them home. Wrapping stations will be available. Donations of wrapping paper, tape, and gift tags are appreciated as well. Food, toys, and gift wrap for this ministry can be put in the red cans in the foyer.

  • Cream of Mushroom Soup (14 oz.)
  • Canned Corn
  • Canned Sweet Potatoes or Yams (16 oz.)
