Christmas Blessing Bags For Rome Kids
Each year we give as many gift bags as we can to the needy elementary children in the Rome school district.
If you could only hear the different stories about the needs of different children… it’s hard to believe, but in
some cases this gift could be the only gift they receive. This year our goal is to help 500 children have a Christmas.
If we all do a little, many children will be blessed!
You can help in four different ways:
1. Fill a bag – (the size of a shoebox) with small gifts.
Choose girl or boy, and grade level K – 3rd or 4th – 6th. The bag should marked boy or girl & grade level.
2. Donate money
Don’t like to shop? We have people who would be happy to shop for you! We will use the entire amount you
donate towards the gift bags.
3. Donate bottles & cans
We will take back your returnables and use the proceeds to fill gift bags.
4. Donate time
It takes time to sort, fill, and pack this many gift bags, and we would love to have you help! 315-339-0242
