Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels to those going away.

Coat Drive Now through November 20

Save the Date - December 19 - GSLP Christmas Program  11am followed by Reception with Santa
Reverse Trick-or-Treating at Springmoor
We had a great time making the fall decorations for the treat bags, assembling them and delivering them to the residents at Springmoor.  We walked over in our Halloween costumes.  Each child gave a bag to a resident.  The bags included two fall decorations, a pumpkin prayer book, a small pack of tissues and a small bag of pretzels.
The children sang some Halloween songs with Ms Katherine and listened to some Halloween books read by Ms Kelli and Ms Kathy.  A fun time was had by all!

 We are looking forward to our next visit on November 18.
Now through Friday, November 18 -  Coat Drive

Please bring gently used hats, gloves, scarves and coats of all sizes to be donated to the Salvation Army.


Annual Toy Swap  December 5 - 9
Take this opportunity to clean out some closets and toy chests! Swap a gently used toy that your child doesn't play with any longer with another gently used toy donated by another family. This event is also a Toy Drive for Families Together, an organization that supports families coming out of homelessness and starting over.

To participate, bring an unwrapped NEW toy to be donated to Families Together along with your gently used toys. All toys remaining after the "swap" at the end of the week are also donated to Families Together. You can also swap gently used special occasion clothes, such as Easter and Christmas outfits or Halloween costumes. If you just want to donate toys and not swap, that is fine too. We ask that you still bring a new toy to donate. Toys and clothes will be collected and exchanged the first full week of December. Help the children at Families Together have a very Merry Christmas!
Spotlight on Service
In addition to the Springmoor outing, children at GSLP made candles to give to Families Together to include in the welcome baskets a family receives when they move into an apartment.
