Christmas 2016 Outreach Projects

Wesley’s No Charge Christmas Store

img_2571CHRISTMAS HELPERS will be asked once again to please consider joining our team of VOLUNTEERS FROM APPLEBY. Wesley is looking for help with setup in the Christmas Store and they will also be looking for shopping assistants. As always, your generous gifts for those less fortunate will be collected in the Christmas Box and delivered to the store on opening day.

WESLEY has asked that $25.00 gifts be directed towards the TEENS this year, as each of the various churches are given a list of a certain age group, so as not to duplicate.

Please take notice of the Wesley posters on the Outreach Board with the new location and more
ideas for gift giving this year. There is also a list of the food items needed to stock the shelves in the store.

“Share the Warmth” Campaign

Please donate new pyjamas, socks, toques, scarves, gloves and personal hygiene products.

Items will go to Wesley Urban Ministries, Our Community Cares, and Halton Woman’s Shelter.  Please place items in the Church hallway box by December 4.

“Operation Christmas Child”

shoeboxes-2016Operation Christmas Child provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on project of Samaritans Purse that focuses on the true meaning of Christmas – Jesus Christ – God’s greatest gift.  This year Appleby members donated almost 100 boxes of Christmas toys and gifts to be distributed to children around the world.
