Christmas Gift Bags for Anacostia
As we have for many years, we will be collecting Christmas gifts to be delivered to Anacostia Gospel Chapel and the ministry of Forcey-missionary Sharon Mathieu, who will distribute them to families in the Anacostia area of Washington DC. Gifts should be new, appropriate for children aged 3-12, and small and/or flexible enough to fit in bags. Please do not wrap individual gifts. Normally the Kindergarten through 5th grade Sunday School classes would put the gift bags together. However, due to the pandemic, we’re going to pivot. We’re asking that you bring already filled gift bags. Empty gift bags can be picked up from Forcey and should be returned full by December 6. If you are unable to fill a gift bag by yourself, we will still be collecting individual items too. Thank you so much for blessing others this Christmas season!
Suggested items include: action figures, pens, pencils, small notebooks, stickers, Nerf balls, small craft projects, small stuffed animals, Play-Doh, paints, rubberstamps and ink pads, matchbox cars, travel games, Subway or McDonald’s gift cards, kids Christian CDs and books, candy, Legos, etc.
