Unleashing Love this Christmas
Southland is honored to be a part of two opportunities to extend hope to families this Christmas.
In Danville, we've partnered with Danville Public Schools and adopted 15 families who need gifts, food, and groceries. At Connection Point, you'll see a Families First Christmas Blitz tree with cards hanging as ornaments. Take an ornament of your choice that requests either a gift card, groceries, or a wish list. Fill out your information, tear it off and give it to us! We will be in contact with any additional information you may need regarding your purchase! Then simply buy the item or items and bring them back to Connection Point the following weekend! We hope you will be a part of spreading the Christmas joy in Danville.
In Nicholasville and Lexington, we are excited to be hosting the 18th annual Faith & Community Christmas Store at our Richmond Road campus December 18-20. The store is a place where families who can’t afford Christmas gifts for their children can come shop for them for free.
Last year it was estimated that more than 15,000 Central Kentucky kids got Christmas gifts because of this store! We need lots of volunteers and lots of donations to pull this off.
Ways you can help:
Volunteer: Volunteers are needed to help organize items, help people shop, wrap gifts, serving refreshments, and any other miscellaneous tasks during the day. Sign up for a shift here.
Donate: Anything for kids ages 0-18 years old (Coats, clothing, games, toys, accessories, movies, shoes, books, etc). You can drop off your new or gently used donations no later than December 17 at the shipping container located in the east parking lot (closest to Home Depot) at the Richmond Road campus and by Helping Through Him at the Harrodsburg Road campus.
Please join us in extending hope this Christmas season.
