November Mission of the Month

Santa for Seniors

For our November Mission of the Month, FPC once again has the opportunity to partner with TARCOG-Area Agency on Aging to provide Christmas gifts for 75 low income, disabled, homebound seniors.

A Christmas tree with names of these seniors and their wish lists is in Fellowship Hall. Please select a person to sponsor and RECORD THE NAME OF THE PERSON AND YOUR NAME AND TELEPHONE NUMBER ON THE LIST. Gifts should be WRAPPED and placed in a large gift bag with the name of the senior attached to the bag. PLEASE RETURN THESE GIFTS TO THE FELLOWSHIP HALL BY SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 28. TARCOG Case Managers will deliver the gifts in December.

Many of these seniors live alone and have very little help and support from family members. The gifts that we provide for them are often the only gifts they receive. If you have questions, please contact Marilyn McCorkle (marilynmccorkle24@gmail.com) or Karen Madison (karenmadison@comcast.net).
