Seattle, WA, Dec. 19, 2013 – Mount Zion Baptist Church is expecting another large turnout for its 5th Annual Christmas Day of Caring toy giveaway on Saturday, Dec. 21 between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Last year over 1,200 individuals were served. Children and youth felt the joy of choosing a toy or gift that they would be able to open on Christmas morning.
While the economy is showing signs of improvement, many families continue to struggle just meeting basic needs. Mount Zion plans to help hundreds of families fill that gap. It’s the goal of Senior Pastor Aaron Williams and church volunteers to ensure no child leaves empty handed.
In addition to gifts, families will be invited to enjoy a nutritious meal, sing along with the Mount Zion Choir and visit the Church’s Helping House, where they can receive gently used clothing and household items at no charge.
Monetary, toy and gift donations from the community are appreciated and needed. They can be delivered to the church through 5:00 p.m. Friday, Dec. 20th.
