Special announcement;  

For Immediate Release

The Ashe County Children’s Christmas Project is in full swing as churches, local groups, and volunteers across the county are needed to purchase gifts for approximately 1,000 children in our county who are in need. 

“We are again sharing the love of Jesus and celebrating His birthday by reaching others with a gift at Christmas time.  More than 1,000 children are in need and we believe that Matthew 25:40 teaches that we are to help the ‘least of these,’” Director of Missions David Blackburn of the Ashe Baptist Association explained. 

The names of the 1,000 children who will receive gifts have already been chosen.  Volunteers who buy gifts should remember that all gift items should be new. The Children’s Christmas Project committee asks the community to consider being a part of this year's Christmas Project by:  1) praying for these folks in need; 2) buying gifts for them (beginning November 4th); and 3)  helping to wrap the gifts at Family Central (Dec. 2 – 6th) as an individual or as a group.  Volunteers are needed to carry the gifts from the wrapping area to the storage area; or 4) giving money to buy needed items.  On the days for wrapping presents, gifts and any donated supplies will be accepted at Family Central between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day. 

In addition to the call for Ashe County churches and organizations to send volunteers to sort, wrap and move Christmas presents for our children this year, help is also needed to provide snacks and drinks for all volunteers.  If any local group is unable to help with the physical labor, then the group can still sign up to bring light refreshments for one day of the Project during the week of December 2nd for approximately 20-25 people.  Refreshments will need to be dropped off at the cafeteria at Family Central around mid-morning. 

The project can use donations of gift boxes in various sizes to wrap the gifts and stocking stuffers for teenagers are also appreciated. These items can be dropped off at the Family Central cafeteria beginning December 2. 

For more information, contact the Ashe Baptist Association at 336-846-5631 or visit www.ashebaptist.orgonline for announcements or information. 


  

National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child is just around the corner:  Nov 18-25.  The Ashe OCC Volunteer Team would like to encourage you to visit the Shoebox display near the self-check line in Walmart.   They have provided pre printed OCC shoe boxes and brochures on How To Pack a Shoebox for anyone that would like to participate.  Shoeboxes will be available at the Walmart display all the way through Nov 24.   Join us in our goal to pack One More Shoebox and reach another soul with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  .
