Our December collection drive will benefit Welcome House Raleigh as they provide Christmas cheer to families who have stayed with them during the past year. 

Individuals, families, and Sunday School classes are encouraged to make Christmas Bags from November 27 to December 11 which contain fun items along with everyday essentials. Most importantly, when these gifts are given, Welcome House Raleigh will also provide the story of the Life of Jesus in every bag. This message is offered in multiple languages so that all our friends may hear the Good News of Christmas in their heart language! 

Deadline for completed Christmas Bags is Sunday, December 11. Completed bags can be dropped off in the Gathering Place beneath the Library window.
