✶ People to work at the sign-up/drop off table
✶ Gift Wrappers (Must be 15 years old or older)
✶ Help with distribution of toys

Visit our table in the lobby after services to sign up.

Instructions:
How to participate
✶ Step 1: Pick a color slip with a child’s age and gender (e.g. Girl 6-8)
✶ Step 2: Sign your name, phone number and/or e-mail on the Toy Donation sheet under the appropriate gender and age group.
✶ Step 3: Drop off your donation. When dropping off your donations, please attach your color slip (from Step 1) or a gift tag with your name, the gender, and age of child — this will help us match our sign-up sheets and donations to assure each child will receive a gift.
