What is “The Christmas Project?”
The Christmas Project is a great opportunity to help shine a little hope into a community that is struggling to make ends meet.
Once again we will be working with Christ-St Peters School in Milwaukee for our outreach Christmas project. This is a great opportunity to share Christ’s love by serving others. We will purchase items for care packages, and with our assistance, the students at Christ St Peters will assemble the care packages and deliver them to neighbors near the school. Not only will we impact a struggling community, but we will also give the students an opportunity to feel the joy of serving others.
What You Can Do Now
You can donate to the project through your OJC envelope, or make an online donation. We are looking to raise $2,000 for the project this year. The money will go towards purchasing food items for a nice meal, winter hats/gloves, sanitary items, and a children’s toy/coloring book.
We will be working with the Pick N Save on Miller Park Rd in West Milwaukee for the purchase of the food items. We will need enough items to make 140 care packages (one care package per student). You can donate to the project through your OJC envelope, or make an online donation through the church website.
Wednesday, December 21st
On Wednesday, December 21st, we will be meeting at Christ St Peters School to assist the students in assembling their care packages, and walking with the students in the neighborhood as they deliver their care packages. The event will last roughly from 8AM-noon, and ends with a special lunch/celebration with the students in their lunchroom. If you would like to volunteer, you can RSVP to Ryan Solie at email@example.com with your name and phone number, or you can sign up at church. Young children are welcome to the event!
Please consider donating and volunteering for this event, as we are having a positive impact on a struggling community in the Milwaukee area!
