On Sundays, Dec. 12 and 19, The Rock Church will suspend its regular services to host an event that will aid families and individuals in need. Members of the congregation will come together to serve meals, give away clothing and toys, and share the joy of the holiday season. Santa Claus and a few other special guests are also scheduled to make a visit to surprise the children.
The church is asking residents to donate toys, clothes, jackets and shoes for recipients of all ages. Monetary donations (tax deductible) are also welcome. Checks may be made out to The Rock Church and include Christmas Outreach Project 2010 in the memo.
Another way to help is to donate items to the church that can be sold or auctioned off, such as cars, stereo equipment and musical instruments.
Volunteers are needed to help sort and hand out clothing and toys, serve meals and visit with guests. For more information about how to get involved, call Associate Pastor Sal Bono at 925-634-4842.
