December 21 & 22 2013 Christmas Care One New Toy Program
The Christmas Care program has been in existence for over 61 years and manages to reach over 3500 families during the holidays with the support of the Central Ohio AFL-CIO, local schools, corporate champions and generous citizens. The Christmas Care program gives a hand to families during the holiday season who find themselves in a critical position due to situations such as fixed incomes, job lay-offs and/or family illness. In an effort to minimize some of the hardship felt by families, St. Stephens will collect non-perishable food items, new toys or receive financial contributions towards the purchase of needed items. Our campaign kick-off is in September. For information as to how you can support our efforts, please contact for more information Marilyn Mehaffie at 294.6347 ext. 135.
Please pray about how God can use you to financially support our efforts to
“Brighten Lives in Columbus”
