Beacon Place Creates a Wonderfully Unique
Gift Program for Christmas 2020
* * * * * *
For 20 years the Community Church has provided Christmas gifts to families in need in northern Lake County. In recent years, we've partnered with Beacon Place, with families from our church purchasing gifts for the Beacon Christmas Boutique. Frankly, it has been a spectacularly run program.
This year, because of Covid - 19, Beacon has come up with a way for their families to receive gifts - without shoppers having to risk being in public. Beacon has created an online Amazon registry as a safe shopping alternative during this unusual Christmas season. (Of course, those who wish to do in-person shopping are encouraged to use the Lake Forest Book Store, where books and board games are in good supply!) So, how to help?
If you wish to shop online, simply click on the link HERE to find a huge assortment of gifts for children, teens, and parents. Purchase a gift or two (or more!) and they will be sent directly to Beacon Place. When you are asked to fill the Gift Message prior to check out on Amazon, be sure to put your name AND “The Community Church,” so that Beacon Place can account for who provided the gifts. If you choose to purchase gifts on your own, please contact Pam Campbell HERE to arrange drop off or pick up.
With your generous support, we can help Beacon Place kids and families celebrate this holiday season with a little extra under the tree. Questions? Contact Sean HERE. (deadline for gifts - Dec. 6)
