Giving Tree | John Ross Outreach

November 17, 2016

GivingTreeEach year, there are several families at John Ross who are not able to provide gifts for their children at Christmas. John Ross Elementary has invited our church to help with their Giving Tree effort for the benefit of these families. This is a great opportunity for our church family to demonstrate the love of Christ through giving, just as God has given to us through Jesus.

Beginning November 20th, the Giving Tree will be set out in the school lobby, with tags for each family in need. The tags will have all the information for the family’s needs.

  1. Stop by the Giving Tree in the school lobby and pick up a gift tag on November 20th, 27th or December 4th.
  2. Purchase a new gift based on the information on the tag.
  3. Bring the unwrapped gift to the Giving Tree area on November 27th or December 4th. Gifts can also be brought to the school office during the week, no later than December 9th.
Other ways to help:
  • Donate Walmart gift cards
  • Donate wrapping paper, ribbon, tape, gift bags, gift tissue, etc.
  • Volunteer with the school staff to wrap the gifts

If you have any questions, please contact Glenda Lawrence ([email protected] or 405-760-5131).

Thanks for making a difference at John Ross Elementary!
