Sign up to decorate a trunk or be a general volunteer or just bring your kids, grandkids or neighbor kids in costume to this fun and festive morning.

Help Christmas Sharing with monetary donations
Families in District 200 need our help. As we prepare for a drive-through Christmas Sharing experience similar to last year, please consider donating at garychurch.org/give. Guests will receive food, toiletries and household supplies—all bought in bulk. Christmas Sharing needs money by Sunday, Nov. 21 to purchase those items, plus provide gift cards to families.
