Christmas Bags for our Homeless Neighbors:
St Jude’s Social Concerns Homeless Ministry would like to make about 35 Christmas bags for the residents of Lighthouse in Harbeson, as well as the rooﬂess homeless who Toni Short supports throughout the year. We would like to put at least the following items in the bags : washcloths , men’s socks, women’s socks , gloves, AXE body wash for men, Soft soap body wash for women (any scent). In addition, or as an alternative, we are collecting Dollar General gift cards. The gift cards will be applied to purchasing the gifts that the “guests” have asked for at the best prices. Any denomination is welcomed but a $20 Dollar General gift card can purchase 5 bottles of AXE body wash OR 6 bottles of Soft Soap body wash for women. You can also donate Walmart cards to be given to Toni Short, the director, as a Christmas present; she can use them for her personal or household needs. The items can be dropped oﬀ by Dec 15 at St Jude's oﬃce; similarly, Gift cards can be dropped oﬀ in the same box in an envelope labeled “Lighthouse Christmas”. The larger Christmas gift bags are also appreciated for putting the items in. Thank you for remembering those who have so little. God bless you.
