The Mitten Tree

This year we will be adorning our Mitten Tree with scarves, hats, gloves, and mittens for children and adults in need. Please consider donating child, youth, and adult sized items for those in need in the greater Norristown area.

The Giving Tree for Bethany Children's Home

Please join us in helping the youth who will be residing at Bethany Children's Home this holiday season. Through your special gifts you will create new positive memories in their life. For many this will be their first Christmas with personal gifts.

Bethany youth are between 12 and 19 years of age. We kindly ask all items be new since used items are unable to be distributed to the youth. We appreciate age appropriate gifts with the consideration of parental warnings, modesty and safety.

In order to have these gifts delivered to Bethany prior to Christmas, please have your donations under the tree at the church by Sunday, December 16th, 2018. Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity!
