To give back to our community this advent season, Jacob’s Well will be collecting gifts for the Argentine Christmas Store as well as collecting monetary donations for local refugees and families in need.
1) GIVE A GIFT BENEFITTING THE ARGENTINE CHRISTMAS STORE
There will be a “Giving Tree” set up in the foyer beginning Sunday, November 28th with drop-off dates on Sundays, December 5th & December 12th. Simply grab a paper ornament off of the tree, purchase the item listed, and bring it back to church, unwrapped on Sunday Dec. 5 or Dec. 12 between 8:30am-12:30pm.
In lieu of selecting an ornament, you may choose to:
- Select an item from this AMAZON WISHLIST and have it shipped (to deliver prior to Dec. 12) to the following address: Amber Booth, 3510 Silver Ave., Kansas City, KS 66106
- Purchase a new toy suitable for a child between the ages of 0-16, pajamas for ages 0-7 or hoodie sweatshirt for ages 8-16. You can either drop off your donation at Snack Shack KC anytime between 3PM-5:30PM Monday Dec. 6 thru Friday Dec. 10, or you can ship it directly to Amber Booth (see address above)
2) MAKE A MONETARY DONATION
Use this form to make a monetary donation benefitting the following causes:
- RENT FOR REFUGEES In partnership with Catholic Charities, your donation will provide local refugees with the means to pay for rent and/or living expenses.
- GIFTCARDS FOR FAMILIES IN NEED Your donation will go towards providing families in need (both from Jacob’s Well, & from the Argentine neighborhood via the Christmas Store) with gift cards to make their Christmas season more memorable.
What’s the Argentine Christmas Store?… For the past few years, JW has partnered with Youthfront to provide a Christmas store in the Argentine neighborhood of KCK. The store offers affordable toys that parents can purchase at heavily discounted prices in order to provide gifts for their children with the added regard for dignity for parents. Parents get to choose their own gifts and pay with their own earnings. The money collected from purchases made through the Christmas Store is poured back into the Argentine community via Youthfront’s programming in Argentine.
