14th Annual Santa Christmas Store at Good Samaritan

Summer is behind us and now as we continue into the Fall/Winter season, our church will be hosting the Christmas Store at Simla Good Samaritan on Monday, December 2, 2019 at 3 p.m.

We donate new and slightly used items to the 27 residents so they have an opportunity to go Christmas shopping – for free – for their family, friends or themselves right there at the center.  It is an event that they look forward to each year.

Please drop off your donations in the Christmas gift-wrapped box that will be in the Narthex beginning November 17 at St. Paul Lutheran.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Sally, Andrea or Carolyn.

On December 2, we will gather at the church at 2 p.m. to load up the donations to take to Simla and display them so the residents will be able to begin shopping at 3 p.m.  Volunteers are needed to assist the residents so just let one of us know if you would like to be a part of this celebration.

  Thank you!  Sally 719-347-2785; Carolyn 719-347-2229; Andrea 719-347-2798
