125!! We can do it!!
This year, First Church will support a toy drive for DC Children and Youth. We hope to either acquire 125 new toys or the funds for these toys. The toys will be donated to Shaw Community Ministry and A Wider Circle. Shaw Community Ministry provides tutoring and mentoring to youth in the Shaw neighborhood. A Wider Circle has committed to provide new unwrapped toys to 10,000 children who live in DC Public Housing. We are excited and privileged to partner with these two wonderful organizations committed to justice and youth development.
There will be a collection box for new toys on Sunday. If you’d like to make a check or cash donation, you can either provide a check to Meg Maguire for “Shaw Community Ministry” or donate online at “A Wider Circle” with the note “Holidays 2018” and let us know. We will track our progress each Advent Week! Please contact Rev. Sam if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
