Adopt a Child for Christmas!

Hello to all. Hope you are having a lovely holiday season!

My wife Melissa, works for Cornerstone Assistance Network, helping
provide housing for homeless families. Cornerstone is doing an
Adopt-a-child-for-Christmas project to provide Christmas gifts for their client's children. Please prayerfully consider participating with your
family in this project.
Here is a message from Melissa:
Turkeys are coming out of hiding and the jingle of bells can be heard in
the distance. It's that time again! Christmas is upon us!
Cornerstone is planning for the holidays and we need your help! Here is
the info:

3CP Adopt-a-Child-for-Christmas Program
Cornerstone will provide children's info and wish lists (30 children).
Volunteers are needed to:
Adopt children @ $100 each; deliver gifts to Cornerstone's main office
on Glenview in NRH or the 3CP office on E. Lancaster or arrange to have
them picked up by December 10.
Option #1

Volunteer to be a shopper. Using the money donated in Option #1 and the
kid's wish list, you can shop 'til you drop!
Please share this opportunity with your family, friends, Bible study
group, frat brothers, sorority sisters, club members, Sunday school
class, bunco group, office buddies, etc. Feel free to forward it to
everyone you know!
For those of you who aren't aware, Cornerstone Comprehensive Care
Program provides housing and case management for formerly homeless
families and individuals. We have approximately 25 families and
singles in our program now. There are about 45 children in those
families. Every quarter we hold a workshop to inform our clients of
pertinent information and life skills. This fall we had a holiday
tradition work shop to teach them how to make a traditional Thanksgiving
meal and tips for starting family holiday traditions. In addition, we
try to alleviate the burden of the season by helping provide gifts for
our clients children.
If you are interested in volunteering in any capacity, please contact
Thanks a bunch and Happy Holidays!
