Menu of Compassionate Gifts

Is there someone you plan to give a gift to that doesn't really need yet another gift – a family member, neighbor, friend or coworker? How about choosing from our Menu of Compassionate Gifts? Six local charitable organizations have been selected and our menu tells you what your donation might do.

You can give at church, or you can order your gifts online. Please remit your gifts by December 31.
