Make A Child Happy This Christmas!

This Christmas season, we are once again participating in the Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley’s Holiday Hope Chest program, which provides wrapped and filled shoeboxes to underprivileged children in the Lehigh Valley.  You can purchase new items to fill and wrap your own shoebox (please wrap top and bottom of box separately), or make a monetary donation, and a shoebox will be filled and wrapped for you—please use a Designated Gift envelope marked “Holiday Hope Chest.”

Choose a star (or two!) from the Christmas tree in the Sanctuary that includes the gender and age of a child as well as gift suggestions and then either bring a shoebox with $25 of Christmas gifts in it to Holy Cross by November 29th.

If you are not attending church due to COVID-19 but still want to make a child happy this Christmas, instead of picking out a child’s card at church, just click the link below to donate.  Select Holiday Hope Chest, then donate $25.  If you are feeling really generous, please also select “cover convenience fees.”  Then, contact elizabeth.charlotte.jenkins@gmail.com to let her know which of the following youth groups you would like to buy for:
