Holiday Baskets & Christmas Angels
Thank you to everyone who contributed to these very special missions! Your generosity in helping our local families is very much appreciated!
Maine Seacoast Mission
Please read carefully: Without in person worship there are several changes to our Seacoast Mission Gift Collection. Since we will not be in the church to have collection bins, we reached out to the Mission to find out how individuals who would like to participate could do so on their own. Anna Silver, who works in Development at the Mission, was kind enough to send us these three ways:
- There is an Amazon account with a wish list. You can choose an item and it will ship directly to the Mission. Here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1V3LB3G19X56U
- For those who would like to shop and then mail gifts directly to Maine Seacoast Mission, here is the Seacoast Mission Gift List. Unwrapped gifts may be mailed to: P.O. Box 428, 6 Weald Bethel Lane, Cherryfield, ME 04662.
- People can send checks to the Mission (subject line: Christmas Program) to Maine Seacoast Mission, P.O. Box 600, Northeast Harbor, ME 04662.
Each year at Christmastime, the Mission distributes about 10,000 holiday gifts to more than 3,200 people in the Downeast and Maine Island areas. They also operate the “Elves’ Workshop” in the Weald Bethel Community Center, where people can choose the gifts they would like to give to their families. The pandemic has only heightened the need in these island communities. Please be as generous as you can. The support from our church is always greatly appreciated!
