Opportunity to Give
As the season of Advent and Christmas approaches, Advent families again have the opportunity to shine Christ’s light for 50 students at Mary H. Wright (MHW).
Operation Magi is looking for volunteers to adopt MHW students (ranging in age from pre-K to 5th grade) and purchase ONLY three gifts for each student. The gifts will include a set of clothing, a book, and one toy/item from the child’s wish list.

MHW shopping lists will be available mid-November and all gifts must be delivered to the Parish and Community Life Center on Sunday, December 13th.

Let Operation Magi be an expression of your joy this Christmas season! This can also be a collective effort for a Sunday school class, Bible study group, Scout troop, or Supper/Book club. To adopt a child, please contact Isabel Barber (barber3@charter.net or 864-583-6618) OR Pat Jennings (pjenn519@aol.com or 864-266-5240).
