Season of Giving

Project Christmas – Love in Action – Your help is needed

Local people helping local people

During this Advent Season we are waiting. But while we wait, we want to follow what Jesus told us – to give food to the hungry, to give something to drink to the thirsty, to welcome the stranger, to give clothing to those without, to visit the sick or in prison. One way to do that is to contribute to Project Christmas here in Delta Junction, Alaska. We need your help.

Project Christmas makes grocery gift cards and gifts for children 18 and under available to families that are nominated by someone and referred by their pastor. The forms are sent to area churches and must be turned in by December 13. If your church did not receive a referral form, please let us know by leaving a message at 895-4322. The individuals/families identified on the referred list will be called to let them know there is a box waiting for them to pick up at the Delta Presbyterian – Faith Lutheran Church. See your pastor if you have any questions. If you are nominating someone with no transportation, offer a ride to pick up the box on one of the distribution days. Distribution will be Dec. 18, 4-7 p.m. and Dec. 19, 3-5 p.m.

Project Christmas is made possible by the donations of people like you and community-minded businesses like yours. Project Christmas is forward-funded. To donate money to Project Christmas, you may put money into the donation cans at various businesses; or you may go to Mt. McKinley Bank and ask them to deposit your donation into the Project Christmas savings account. Project Christmas is not a 501(c)(3) tax deductible entity, so if you want to deduct your donation on your tax return, you must donate to your 501(c)(3) church and have the church make a donation to Project Christmas.

You may donate through Delta Presbyterian – Faith Lutheran Church at PO Box 884, and Seventh Day Adventist Church at PO Box 1276. These churches sponsor Project Christmas in Delta Junction.

Thank you and Merry Christmas.
