St. Philip’s Christmas Project
Operation Christmas Child –First giving option: Operation Christmas Child – Please take part in filling a shoebox or two for a boy and/or girl from around the world. After sharing the story of the Good Samaritan, Jesus said “Go and do likewise.” That is the mission of Samaritan’s Purse—to follow the example of Christ by helping those in need and proclaiming the hope of the Gospel. You can get involved by getting a shoebox and label in the lobby. Then go out and fill the box for a child.
If you have any questions, please contact Casey Freed at 412-523-5830.
All boxes MUST be returned to the church by November 12, 2023.
- Another giving option is the Angel Tree in the lobby: Choices Pregnancy Care Center opens its arms to women and their families facing crisis pregnancies by providing free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, STI testing, early pregnancy health screenings and education. We are asking that you help pregnant and new moms, dads and babies feel a little extra love this Christmas. We want to honor those parents that said “Yes” to life by giving them a gift to open Christmas morning and providing needed items for their baby. Please take a tag from the Angel Tree in the lobby if you would like to show love and support to Choices.
If you have any questions, please contact Sara Foley at 412-600-7475.
All gifts MUST be returned to the church by December 3, 2023.
Final giving option: Adopt a Person. We have coordinated with:
Hope Recovery: https://www.hoperecoverygroup.com/about-us
Independence Professional: https://independenceprofessionals.com/
No Child Fights Alone: https://nochildfightsalone.org/
and local families to help fulfill clothing and essential needs at Christmas. Many people on the list will receive gifts only from those who took their name from St. Philip’s Christmas Project. The items on their wish lists are humbling, showing their great need. To ensure we keep track of the person’s name and who is purchasing gifts for that person, please call or text Sara Foley at 412-600-7475, if you would like a name.
All gifts MUST be returned to the church or to Sara Foley by December 3, 2023
