To the editor:
The 24th annual Secret Santa program for underprivileged children in Union County is now under way! The program, sponsored by the Upper Room and Young Adult Sunday School Classes at Grace United Methodist Church, has a goal of serving 405 children (ages 10 and under) this Christmas season.
We are asking for people in our community to sponsor at least one child. Parents have submitted a list of three gifts for each child and sponsors are asked to purchase at least one of the gifts from the list but may purchase all three. In addition, we are asking that sponsors include an item in each package that relays the message of God’s love.
Our sponsorship drive will run through Dec. 13, with the last day to return gifts on Dec. 14. If you would like to sponsor a child, please give us a call between 7 a.m.-9 p.m. at 429-3626 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We truly appreciate the community’s generosity over the years of delivering packages to deserving children at Christmas!
