Christmas Sharing 2020
Christmas Sharing is a way for our church family to come alongside families in our community who may need assistance in providing Christmas gifts for their children. Christmas Sharing gifts this year are for the children enrolled in our Snack Pack ministry. Due to COVID-19, we are adjusting the way we conduct Christmas Sharing, but know that it will be a wonderful blessing for all those involved in spite of the differences.
How Do I Select A Tag?
You will receive a Needs Request through MyPAUMC to select your "Tag." Check your email for the Christmas Sharing list.
If you did not receive the email allowing you to select the child or items you would like to purchase, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and put Christmas Sharing in the subject line. We will get back to you to answer any questions you may have and help you find your place to volunteer.
Alternately, you can find the list by logging into mypaumc.com and click on the Admin: Park Avenue Family group - Needs.
The Needs Request will have a short description of each child. The Food Basket list and a detailed list of clothing sizes and toys are available here.
About the Tags
Toy, Clothing, and Food Basket tags are available. Families are grouped by Letters and individual children are identified by Numbers. For Example A1, A2, A3 represents 3 children in the same family. B1, B2, B3, B4 would represent 4 children in a second family.
There will be one Food Basket per family at a value of around $50 - those will be listed as A-Food, B-Food, etc.
We are asking that if you choose a Toy Tag, please purchase no more than 3 toys per child and remain under the budget of $60.
If you choose a Clothing Tag, please purchase no more than 3 clothing items plus underwear/ diapers and socks and remain under a budget of $90.00.
Just a note of explanation regarding the guidelines for purchase: By not remaining in these guidelines, we can inadvertantly hurt siblings who may receive "more" or "less" than each other. If you catch a great sale that's wonderful, but please adhere to the maximum number of items.
When Do I Return My Items?
All gifts must be purchased, WRAPPED, and delivered to the main office of the church no later than December 13, 2020.
Families will come through a drive thru line on Saturday, December 19th to receive gifts.
