Over 1.7 million children in America have a parent in prison, and the numbers continue to rise. The Outreach Committee asks you to help brighten Christmas by donating new toys, art supplies, sports, equipment, music, or clothing for all ages under 18. Your contribution should go into a gift bag, labeled with age and gender, and placed at the back of the church. Gifts, which will be collected until December 22, will be distributed through the Diocese of Newark’s Prison Ministry program. For questions, email Sue Singer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
