Participating in Armful of Love is a wonderful Christmas tradition at Advent Church to provide gifts to families in need. Due to the pandemic and an effort to minimize person-to-person contact, the Armful of Love campaign will look different this year. Instead of providing wish lists and collecting presents, 360 Communities will be collecting gift cards in multiples of $25 to only the retailers listed and will need you to tape individual gift receipts to each gift card. Armful of Love is planning to distribute $100 per child and $50 per adult. In an effort to get the cards disbursed for those families in need prior to the holiday shopping season, all gift card donations must be received no later than Sunday, Oct. 25.
Please sign up to participate below. You can bring the gift cards to church, if you feel comfortable doing that. Otherwise, you can mail a check payable to Advent UMC or make an online donation designated as AOL, and Outreach will purchase the gift cards for you. Checks and online donations must be received at church no later than Sunday, Oct.25.
