2022 Christmas Giving Tree
It’s time for the Christmas Giving Tree! Advent has received the names and information for providing gifts to 20 children from families with students at nearby Gregory Hill Learning Center. They range in age from toddlers to teens.
Each child should receive 2 presents: a want and a need. The children and related information can be seen and selected through the 2022 Christmas Giving Tree google form link below. After you select child and submit your choice, you should receive an email response. If you do not get an email, please contact Joan LaRose at 480-244-8753 by text or phone call and she will send you a confirmation response. If you need assistance with signing up for a child, you can contact Joan LaRose or Cindy Lindholm in the office.
Please have all gifts to Advent by Tuesday, December 13th. Please leave the gifts unwrapped and make sure each gift has the child’s name attached to help us ensure they get to the correct child.
Thank you for your generosity!
Update: All of the children have been selected for this Christmas
Radio Players Christmas Performance
