For many Christmases you have responded to the needs of children and youth in our community with loving kindness through the Angel Tree project. Things are a little different this year, but the need is still there, and arrangements have been made to be able to share at Christmastime.
This year's Angel Tree will have 2 donation options.
1. Community Shelter Services - This year the shelter is only accepting donations of gift cards for the children in their Emergency Shelter and Lighting the Candle programs. These gift cards will be given to the parents so they may purchase their own gifts for their children. If you would like to give to this option, we encourage you to give through the Scrip program as this also allows Wayside to benefit from the purchases. For this option, please send your donation via check or cash to the church office indicating that it is for an Angel Tree gift card by December 9th. You also may donate using the online giving portal at https://www.wayside-erie.
2. Perseus House - For those individuals who would like to give a physical gift, we will be partnering with Perseus House. Perseus House has several residential facilities for youth in need of comprehensive services promoting pro-social behavior and healthy lifestyles. Earlier this month, those youth (ages 12-18) were informed they are not going to have family visitations this year due to COVID protocols. While they are a small token, we are hoping that gifts provided by Waysiders will help to add a little merry to their Christmas. Wayside will be adopting 2 of these residential facilities housing 17 boys. To sign up to purchase gifts, please use this Sign Up Genius link: https://www.
Thank you for your generosity. Merry Christmas!
