Christmas Baskets for Shut-ins

Holidays are a time of excitement and cheer, but also a time of difficulty for many. The On Our Own group has prepared Christmas Baskets for those who, for various reasons, are unable or unwilling to leave their home.

They fill these baskets with various gifts that are helpful and inspiring.

Tasty treats like candy and cookies can be found inside, as well as Christmas cards with hopeful messages. The baskets also contain practical personal items like toothbrushes, lotions, and various toiletries. For those who are unable to drive to the store, these baskets make all the difference.

Each basket is given care and attention, and is prepared lovingly. They contain notebooks, pens, and other things to inspire creativity.

These baskets are just one way in which the On Our Own group helps the community. A wide variety of activities are available – projects, missions, and social events. If you would like to join, please contact Shirley Eick at 352-633-0560.

Pastors will personally deliver these baskets to the shut-ins.
