Free pancakes and sausage are being offered from 7:30-8:30 am for the Christmas Store and Christmas Craft Workshop volunteers and then from 8:45-noon for the community. It will be a great time of fellowship and good food! We will need 40 volunteers to help flip pancakes and serve breakfast on this morning with friends from Harvest Vineyard.
Many community partners come together to share Christmas joy by hosting the Christmas Store from 9am-noon at the Boys & Girls Club, next door to Harvest Vineyard Church. The store gives parents who are struggling financially the opportunity to shop for their own children by selecting new toys/gifts that will be priced at a great discount. Shoppers will be welcomed by invitation only, and toys/gifts will be purchased and donated by community friends and partners. We love that this is an event that allows everyone to participate and give! We will need 266 volunteers for the Christmas Store. Volunteers must be 16 years or older.
Consider giving financially to help fund the events of the day and to help purchase gifts for the Christmas Store. Checks may be made out to Orchard Hill Church with "Christmas in Walnut" written in the memo line or donate securely online. Checks may be hand delivered or mailed to the Orchard Hill Church Office at 3900 Orchard Hill Drive, Cedar Falls, IA 50613.
