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 those who are sick or in prison. One way to do that is to contribute to Project Christmas here in Delta Junction, Alaska. We need your help.
This year Project Christmas makes funds for groceries – rather than the usual boxes of food — and gifts for children 18 and under available to families that are nominated by someone or referred by their pastor. The forms are sent to area churches and must be turned in by December 11. If your church did not receive a referral form, please let us know by leaving a message at 907-895-4322.
The individuals/families identified on the referred list will be called to let them know there are items 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 items on one of the distribution days which will be December 16, 4-7 p.m. and December 17, 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 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.
The members of Delta Presbyterian – Faith Lutheran Church (PO Box 884) and Seventh Day Adventist Church (PO Box 1276) sponsor Project Christmas in Delta Junction.
Thank you and Merry Christmas.
