“Adopt a Child” has been a major service project for many years and is chaired by Jodi Martin Oiler. The purpose of “Adopt a Child” is to provide Christmas presents for children and their families that do not have the resources to purchase presents. The children’s names are submitted by schools and case workers. Last year Faith Lutheran was able to provide for gifts for 15 children out of the total of 250 provided by “Adopt a Child”. The money donated for “The Cause of the Month” in July is used by Jodi to shop for all the necessary items during the off season sales: coats, hats, gloves, scarfs, shoes, socks, underwear, pajamas, and an outfit. The early collection of money also determines how many children the church can adopt. As usual there will be the fun items placed on the wall and a table of items members will be able to shop from when the time gets closer. Jodi thanks Faith members for the great support and the wonderful Christmas the church has provided for many children in the past 4 years. We look forward to putting smiles on faces and some warm clothes on children that truly need them!
