For the past five years, Olympia-area churches have combined forces to host an all-day Christmas event for those in need. “A Home For Christmas” offers a warm, friendly place for homeless and needy families and individuals to spend Christmas Day. In past years, we’ve offered comfortable seating, movies on the big screen, board games, activities for children, snacks, prizes, and a full-course Christmas dinner.
Volunteers: First, there will be a volunteer meeting Sunday, December 22nd at 1pm at Reality. If you can stay after the meeting to wrap presents with us, that would be awesome! Second, we’re using VolunteerSpot (an online signup and reminder tool) to organize our Home for Christmas volunteering.
