As in previous years, CBS has adopted two families through the Voluntary Action Center’s holiday program: a mom with three kids and an elderly woman.
Click here for the SignUpGenius page that has all the details about the items on each family’s wish list and how you can help.
Drop off items at CBS in the box in the hallway of the sanctuary building the week of November 12. Everything will be picked up at noon on November 18. Or contact Michelle Golden at 314.603.3087 or michelle.golden@goldenperspective.com to arrange to drop off gifts at her home November 26-28. Also contact Michelle with questions.
Thank you so much for helping to make these families’ lives a little better!
