Christmas Tree of Love


We're collecting donations

all month long!

Every year Clay church collects names, from Muessel, Harrison and Swanson Schools, of families who need assistance with Christmas gifts, for their children and tags for those children are placed on trees in the narthex. However, schools in South Bend have been participating in online learning through the beginning of October and the school social workers did not have contact with their students. This combined with the fact that we, as a congregation, are not meeting within the church makes it difficult to provide gifts, as we have in the past.

However, these families still need our help.  The plan is to provide each family with a food basket and gift cards (for Christmas gifts).  The school Social Workers believe this is how we can best help their families at this time.

So, we need the help of our congregation.  This year we are asking you to purchase gift cards, for the Christmas Tree of Love, instead of toys and clothes. $25.00 gift cards from Meijer, Target or Walmart will be collected at the Firehouse/Clay south campus.  Or give online under Trees of Love.
