Christmas is just around the corner, and we here at United Crescent Hill Ministries believe that it will be incredibly important to embrace the spirit of giving for this upcoming holiday season. We are so excited to kick off our annual Christmas Connection program, a program dedicated to ensuring that the children in our community can have a cheerful and fulfilling holiday. UCHM is dedicated to keeping each other as safe as possible during this unprecedented Christmas season, so our Christmas Connection program will look a little different this year. Rather than fulfilling children’s wish lists by purchasing gifts ourselves, we are asking our sponsors for donations in the form of cash or check. These donations will be used by UCHM staff and volunteers to purchase $100 Target, Walmart, or Amazon gift cards and $25 Kroger gift cards, one for each child in a family. These gift cards will allow families to prioritize their needs, as well as give them the dignity of providing for their family in the best way that they see fit.
Sponsoring a family for this program helps tremendously in taking the stress out of the Christmas season, and focusing on the joy. If you are interested in donating or sponsoring a family, please visit our page here and select “Christmas Connection Program” when making your contribution. You can also donate cash or check and mailing or delivering to our office at 150 South State Street, Louisville, KY 40206. If you are unable to donate the full $125 to sponsor a child, please consider making a smaller donation to go towards the program. Any amount is meaningful and will go to support a family during the holidays. For questions, please contact Emily Purdy at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to help, or call 502-893-0346.
