Christmas giving opportunities

This Christmas season, share the gifts of remembrance and warm clothing for those in need. Here are two opportunities:

Christmas gifts for seniors

We are collecting money donations and gift cards to purchase gifts for seniors at Lyngblomsten Care Center who do not have families or visitors to remember them at Christmas. The Lyngblomsten staff will use your donations to buy gift items for the residents.

Suggested cards include Target, JCPenney, Walmart, Kohls and Macy’s. You can buy these at the Scrip table during coffee hour. Please make checks payable to Lyngblomsten Foundation. Look for a designated donation box in the church lobby. We’ll take the donations and cards to Lyngblomsten Friday, Dec. 8.

Christmas hats and mittens for kids

Look for the tree in the lobby, where we’ll collect hats and mittens for children and youth. The Department of Indian Work at Interfaith Action in St. Paul will distribute your gifts to its clients. Bring donations by Sunday, Dec. 17.
