Christmas Store

 

     Christmas is an exciting time for many children except for poor urban kids served by Raleigh Community Church of Christ.  For urban children in the Raleigh - Frayser area as well as all over the city, Christmas can be a dreaded time that reinforces the economic barriers they face daily.  Through our ministries in the community, it has become clear that the sad reality is that the conditions they live in are not their fault.  For many of these families after basic necessities like rent and utilities are paid, very little is left to purchase toys for their children.  The Christmas Store offers a special opportunity to share our resources with others – especially children.  Through the Christmas Store, each year parents are able to provide toys for Christmas for their own children.  This provides dignity for the parents and they are not embarrassed watching as vans drive up and provide the toys for their children.

 

     If you wish to help children have toys for Christmas, you simply purchase one or more ethnically and culturally appropriate toys that are $8-$50 in value.  Please do not wrap the toys and price tags should be left on the package.

 

     Because of the past generosity of individuals, churches, non profit organizations, and businesses, the Christmas Store has allowed thousands of children in some of the poorest neighborhoods of America to have toys for Christmas.

 

     If you would like to help, you can order toys through this Wal-Mart link and they will be delivered to us.   For more information, please contact Judy Conway or Jim Harbin at 901-385-9858.  You may also purchase toys at your favorite store and drop them off at the Raleigh Community Church of Christ at 4748 New Allen Road, Memphis, TN  38128.   The deadline for toys is December 16, 2017.

 

The Turkey Store

     Each year Christians in our city gear up for the annual Turkey Store to be held at the Raleigh Community Church of Christ.  This year the Turkey Store will be held on Sunday, November 19th after morning worship.  The Turkey Store runs from about 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm.  Families from all over the city come to worship with us and receive a  FREE Turkey and a sack of food to prepare their own Thanksgiving meal.  We are grateful to all of the individuals, churches, and businesses that donate money for turkeys and sacks of food.

 

     If you would like to assist, please donate $15 per turkey.  Please do not donate turkeys because we    do not have a place to store them; rather we pre-order FROZEN turkeys and purchase them in bulk.  We pick up the frozen turkeys on the day of the Turkey Store.  If you would like to donate $15 for a turkey and a sack of food.  The sack should contain:  2 cans of corn, 2 cans of green beans, 1 can of cranberry sauce, stuffing mix, rolls and a dessert.  For more information call the church at 901-385-9858.

 

 

if your family needs a FREE Turkey this Thanksgiving, you are invited to the Turkey Store, Sunday, November 19th at 12:30 pm.  Please join us for Bible Class at 9:30 am and Worship at 11:00 am.  There is no requirement to attend.

We are a compassionate community of faith reconciling the world by making disciples.
