Loved people serve people.
Last year, Spirit of Joy! and Children of Joy! partnered with organizations across Montgomery County to provide a joyful Christmas celebration to 500+ children in the foster care system.Together we collected 200+ gifts to bring joy to these young people as they gathered for their annual Christmas party.
We are at it again this year – be a part of the joy of giving!
From November 25 – December 9, we are collecting FUN gifts to be given to the children at their Christmas party.
Please take an ornament from the Christmas Tree, purchase the item for the age/gender selected and return the unwrapped gifts by December 9. Please attach the ornament to the gift. Gifts should be:
- Approximately $20-$25 per gift
- New, unwrapped
- Something that is not too large – easily transportable.
Here are some suggestions for children ages 8 and up, which is the most needed. For more suggestions, shop at smile.amazon.com, a portion your purchase goes back to SOJ! Store gift cards are also acceptable (Target, Walmart, Ulta, Best Buy, etc.)
