    SHOWING THE LOVE OF CHRIST

    IN A PRACTICAL WAY

    Every year there are hundreds of children who go without the proper food and resources during Christmas.  TFRC is committed to displaying the love of Christ to these families.  It is time again for our Christmas assistance food drive and shopping spree!  We have put together this insert in order to try to answer your questions.  Please contact Chet at chet@tfrc.org in order to find out more.

    What’s the general plan of how things will work this year? 

    You sign up with your partnering family by November 24.

    We assign a family to you and get you their information on December 8.

    You show up at Fred Meyer on Tuesday, December 17 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and shop.  You get together to wrap the gifts.  You make arrangements to deliver the gifts to the family within the specified time.  There will be a number of follow-up ideas available to you which You will receive when you are assigned a family and given a packet.

    Although you don't HAVE to go on the same night in order to participate, we are encouraging everyone to show up to do their shopping at Fred Meyer this year on Tuesday, December 17 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
