Greetings to all,
For several years Plattville Lutheran Church has supported the Holiday Hope Chest program of Lutheran Social Services of Illinois. In the past, members have chosen the wish list of a child being served by LSSI and purchasing gifts from that list to be given at Christmas. COVID-19 has brought about many changes in the delivery of services by LSSI including staff working remotely and clients being seen via Skype and Zoom. Because of this, the Holiday Hope Chest is being done differently this year. In stead of collecting gifts, LSSI will provide gift cards to their clients.
I am asking any of you who are interested to make a special gift to support LSSI Holiday Hope Chest this year. Any amount would be welcome. Their intention is to provide $25 and $50 gift cards. They are able to purchase gift cards that will be usable only for proper gifts (not tobacco or alcohol). I hope you will consider this opportunity to show compassion to those in need.
Please make checks payable to Plattville Lutheran Church and indicate that it is a gift for Holiday Hope Chest . We will receive donations until Sunday, November 29. One check will then be sent to LSSI. Thank you very much for your generosity.
Blessings in Christ,
