TWO SPECIAL CHRISTMAS MISSION PROJECTS THIS YEAR



THE KID SANTA


            Many long time members of Cherry Hill Church will remember Kenneth  Isaacson. Ken was born in Russia and brought to the United States as an orphan. He was adopted by former Cherry Hill Members Jo Ann and Kevin Isaacson. Ken and Katya were baptized at Cherry Hill and attended Sunday School as children.  Today, at the age of 20, Ken is also known as the “Kid Santa” and is doing whatever he can to make sure kids in need have a merry Christmas.


In 2018, Ken wanted to make a difference for kids at a homeless shelter. “I spent Christmas morning with other people who are less fortunate as well, so I wouldn’t have to be alone and it just stuck with me," Ken said. “Among the families I’m helping are those who have lost jobs, loved ones, or businesses,” he said. Ken works as an EMT and uses money from that to raise funds for toys. “I donate an entire day of pay each week. I also donate plasma two times a week.”  If donating blood isn’t hard enough, he’s made financial cuts in his life to fund this mission. He is hoping other people will be inspired to help as well.


This year, we have the opportunity to help “The Kid Santa” spread holiday cheer by donating new toys which will then be delivered to children in need in our community. Kid Santa’s list includes:


Legos              Board games    Art Supplies   Barbie Dolls         Paw Patrol

Baby Dolls     Stuffed Animals        Baby Toys    Hot Wheels/Matchbox Toy Cars

Wrapping Paper and Large Boxes are needed as well.


A large box will be in Weir Foyer for you to place your donations. In coming weeks, look for opportunities to help with wrapping and packing the toys for delivery!

BOARD OF DEACONS WARMING TREE


Our Board of Deacons has been working with Marcy Mohsen, Student Support Coordinator, at Bryant Middle School. At the end of summer, we collected a large number of school supplies which were given to the teachers at Bryant for students in need. As winter draws closer, Marcy informs us that there is a growing need for scarves, winter hats, gloves, etc. among a number of students. The Board of Deacons is sponsoring a “Warming Tree” in Weir Foyer. The tree will be in place on Sunday, November 21, and will stay up until the middle of December. Items needed include:  


Winter hats, scarves, and gloves for boys and girls, ages 5 through 13

Winter boots and coats for boys and girls, ages 5 through 11


You may place your donations directly on the tree. (Boots may be placed under the tree.)

Our participation in one or both of these Christmas projects will indeed help to make Christmas a bit brighter (and warmer) for children in our community! Thank you for sharing the spirit of Christmas in a very special way.

What can I do?


Helping Hand Food Pantry


We are helping people in our community

to fight hunger.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Helping Hand’s Mission Statement

 

Helping Hand is a program supported by the congregation of this church.  We supply food to people of our community on an emergency basis.  Other area churches and local organizations participate in this program by providing additional food and monetary donations that assist us in keeping the church pantry supplied.  These are our sole sources of assistance to aid those who come to us in need.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The Helping Hand Food Pantry is open on the first and third Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.* If it is your first time, please come before 12:00 noon. To qualify to receive food from the pantry, a picture I.D. is required.  Only one person per household (per address) is eligible to apply for assistance for the family.  Eligible participants can receive food from the pantry once every other month**.

 

*may be closed due to bad weather, or a church event; it’s best to call ahead

**subject to change depending on food supply

     

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Since 1989, the food pantry has served an increasing number of families every year and remains committed to addressing food insecurity in southeast Michigan where, as many as 1 in 7, households struggle to put food on the table.


During the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have maintained our food distribution.

We developed a contact-less delivery system for the protection of our clients and our workers.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


How can I donate food?

 

Generally, you can drop off non-perishable food items to the church Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., but please call ahead.

Can I make a monetary donation?


Absolutely!
