U.S. Marine Corps Reserve ‘TOYS FOR TOTS’  
Jamie Myers
The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve ‘Toys for Tots’ program is to collect new, unwrapped toys or books and distribute as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in our Community (toys are distributed in the community in which the Marine Corps Reserve Unit is located). Their goal is to send a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. Place new, unwrapped toys in the Toys for Tot collection box in the Narthex. 
 
Monroe County Church Women United ‘CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS’
Faye Cyphers
This Mission project of the Church Women United is to prepare ‘Christmas Stockings’ for men, women, or children and distribute them throughout Monroe County. Filled stockings are given to Monroe County Women’s Resources, Children & Youth, The Clothing Room, and children of parents who are in prison. Inside the stocking is a list of suggestions for filling for men, women, or children. Take a stocking from the banisters in the narthex and return it filled. You can tie it right back on the banister!
