PASADENA COMMUNITY CHURCH, LIFE ENRICHMENT CENTER

ST PETERSBURG, FL
If you want to start your day with a smile on your face and joy in your heart, please make plans to attend our annual Christmas Giving Celebration. When you walk into the Church Gymnasium, you will be covered with goosebumps from your head to toe with the site of toys for children who need Angels to spread magic into their lives. Children who have little to smile about will enjoy Christmas morning knowing there are people who care enough to help them Believe there is good in this world. People like YOU. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for giving these children Hope for a better tomorrow. Please join us and feel the magic.
For the amazing Angels who have adopted children and families, please make sure when you bring your gifts that you do the following:
- Every gift needs to have the name of the child and the Agency. Even if the gifts are unwrapped, please make sure they are identified with the child’s name.
- We will be setting up the Gymnasium December 10th after 3:30 PM so we will be ready for the Christmas Celebration Wednesday morning December 11th 8:30 AM. If possible, please bring the gifts to the Church on the 10th so we can be ready. If you are unable to bring the gifts by at that time, please let me know (Sandy Kearney 727 804 7710 or [email protected]) and I will make arrangements to pick everything up prior to setup.
- We are working with several agencies so it is important that you identify every child with the correct agency since the room will be set up to accommodate the agencies.
- If you need help with purchasing any of the items, please contact me as well and I will see how I can help.
- Please make sure we know how many guests from each of the agencies will be coming to help load the gifts and attend the Celebration.
We look forward to seeing all of you for this memorable occasion!
PLEASE RSVP ASAP THAT YOU ARE ATTENDING.
