Our church is taking on Poway, to share love and engage in our community.
Here's the latest Email...
The Poway Unified School District runs three awesome programs, and we are stepping in to help:
- ADOPT-A-FAMILY at Christmas: We are providing a complete outfit with shows and a wish gift for two families: A family with 5 children and a family with 4 children. Can you help?
- 4 Community Care Food Drive: You can rade your own food pantry and bring food to the church.
- 4 Community Care Toiletry-stuffed Christmas Stockings: Each Christmas stocking needs the following: tooth brush, tooth paste, brush/comb, hand sanitizer, hair shampoo, and deodorant, plus Christmas treats.
To get more information, contact Brenda Boyd, Janice Hensel, Jennifer Ramos, Jaeyoung Chung, Delia Gaba, Karla Rivas, or Liezel Buenavista
Below you will see the commonly asked questions, and the information about your child.
Please read it completely so you will have all the information you need.
HOW MUCH DO I SPEND?
The total per child is about $100. Between the four items, it's about $25 each. So shoes would be about $25, tops $25, etc.
CAN I BUY MORE FOR MY CHILD IF I WANT?
You can, but we need to be sure that all the kids in the same family are treated equitably. So if you want to buy more, buy for the family as a whole.
CAN I INCLUDE USED GIFTS?
No. All of the gifts need to be new, unused.
WHAT IF I DON'T WANT TO GET THE WISH GIFT?
You do not have to get the wish gift. Instead, you can give a gift card.
CAN I PUT A CARD IN THE GIFT?
You can write a card for your child, but please only use your first name. You can also use the name of the church, which is San Diego Central Seventh-day Adventist Church in Poway.
HOW DO I LABEL EACH GIFT?
THIS IS IMPORTANT. You must put all the gifts for your child in a bag. The gifts are to be unwrapped. You label the bag with the family number, gender, age. Example: V12, Boy, 18.
DO I WRAP THE GIFTS?
WHEN DO I BRING THE GIFTS TO THE CHURCH?
Saturday, November 28, and Saturday, December 5, from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.
WHAT IS THE CHURCH ADDRESS?
13940 Pomerado Road, Poway
