Handle with Love

Be part of our Christmas serving campaign

Handle with Love

This year we're taking Jesus' command to care for those in our communities literally. Handle with Love is our Christmas serving campaign! We'll be partnering with local nonprofits to collect new PJ's, socks, underwear, and other basics for kids in foster care.

Handle with Love bags will be available in the entryway at your campus from Sunday, November 25 to Sunday, December 16. Fill a bag (or 10!) with as many new PJ's, socks, and underwear in sizes 2T to Junior as you want, and bring it back to your campus by December 16. We'll make sure to get the items to kids by Christmas!

Let's take Jesus at his word this Christmas, serving those looking for hope with nothing but love.
