12/02/2020: Share Holiday Cheer!

Dear LAC Community,
It is the time of year where we experience the joy of Advent, the time leading up to Christmas day. For many this year, it will be difficult to feel this joy. The holiday season can be a challenging time of year for anyone, but especially those who are in need. The stress of the season mixed with financial woes can be a lot for anyone to handle.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of families who are struggling to get by in our
Community has soared while the number of organizations able to help is limited due to social
distancing and health precautions.

Once again this year, Church and Society will provide some much needed Christmas cheer to
families in need in our community. We will provide Gift Cards and Gift baskets to twice as
many families than we did in 2019. What a wonderful opportunity this is for LAC to demonstrate our willingness to help the less fortunate, while we celebrate the spirit of giving!
There are two ways you can help:
One is to adopt an individual assigned to LAC by the Town of Mamaroneck to purchase a gift
card for. Wish lists for specific gift cards for those individuals will be provided. This way,
families can purchase the basics they need or purchase gifts for loved ones. Please sign up here: [LINK]

A second way to help is to donate funds. The C&S committee will use monetary donations to
purchase holiday goodies, hats, scarves, small games, and food gift cards to fill a holiday
basket for each family. You can donate through the church website at www.lacny.org/giving and select “Christmas” in the drop down menu on the Giving page. You can also mail a check noting “Christmas” in the memo. All donations must be received by Tuesday, December 15.

With gratitude and joy, let’s spread some cheer!
