Every year, Hosanna Industries sends out volunteers to deliver Christmas gifts and groceries to the impoverished households in the region that we have helped this year. Many of these households will not receive any other gifts this season, and this is a great family-friendly opportunity to serve.
The gifts are provided and packaged specifically for each client household mostly by the Women of Bakerstown Church, and the beef is provided by Rod and Bev Blair. Contact Amanda if you’d like to help to provide frozen chickens or turkeys to our clients.
Saturday, December 9th between 8-9:30AM. (We will give you a specific time when you pre-register.) We provide you with client contact information, so that you can arrange a time best for you and them to deliver anytime before Christmas. As long as one person can pick up the gifts and directions on Saturday morning, the whole group does not need to attend gift pickup.
Volunteer spots for our Gift Delivery program for this year are now full. Please let us know (by contacting Amanda) if you'd like to be added to the waiting list, in case someone cancels. Thank you!
Note from a former client: “I would like to thank you so much for the gifts to us; we are extremely grateful for your generosity. We hung the wreath by our cross for Jesus’ birthday. I made a cake, and we sang, and celebrated his birth. On Christmas Eve we had Hamburger Helper thanks to you. On Christmas Day when Lealah opened her present, her eyes lit up, and she was so excited. She has not stopped playing shopping: it is so cute. I put the food in different rooms, and off she goes shopping. It was the best gift she got. Jeremy and I really enjoyed the sherpa throws, candy, hot chocolate, and tea. At the end of the night I enjoyed a cup of tea, a hot bath (thanks to you), and a snuggle with Lealah reading bedtime stories with the sherpa throws keeping us warm and cozy. It had been 9 years since I got to open a gift so I cried joyfully. Thank you again for making Christmas joyous and happy. I know there are angels on earth- thanks to you. God bless!”
