The Justice and Mission committee has been in touch with the Brazos County Child Welfare Board to find 65 children for us to sponsor. These are all children who have been removed from their homes and will be apart from their families. You will choose a child who you would like to sponsor. You will receive an email confirming your child. Anne Wehrly will send you an email with the child's Christmas Wish List attached. Choose one or more items from the Wish List. (You do not have to purchase all items requested--they are suggestions from the foster family and the child/youth.) Wrap the present(s) that you have for your child. Attach the name of the child with the Information sheet that you have received. The presents can be dropped off in the narthex of Friends Church after worship on Sunday, during office hours (9-3 pm Monday through Friday) or one of the following times:
Saturday, Dec. 10 from 10 AM to Noon
Sunday, Dec. 11 from 3 to 6 PM
Monday, Dec. 12 from 3 to 6 PM
(Tuesday, Dec. 13--Presents delivered to Child Protective Services)
Mary Howell will be at Friends to receive your presents. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact either Mary or Anne. If you need us to pick up the items from your home, we should be able to arrange for that as well.

Note: We will also be accepting food and gas cards for our pastors to distribute to those in need in our community. They may be dropped off at these times as well or mailed to the church with attention to Pastor Dan DeLeon or Pastor Trent Williams.
