Our Savior Lutheran-Norfolk GM Auto Center- KNEN 94.7 Christmas Gift
Each year thousands of families ask this question. How am I going to pay for my kids Christmas presents? Most often we see them involved in what I call “one-way giving.” They sign up with an agency and are simply given gifts at Christmas. This is beneficial for many.
This Christmas Our Savior Lutheran church seeks to not just help low-income families by handing out free gifts. Instead, we are looking to give back dignity. Dignity is something so many of us take for granted. Often, when give out handouts we are taking away an essential human need, the need for dignity. When parents cannot be seen as the providers of the household, they are hurt. A parent has the want and need for their child to see them as the primary giver.
Therefore, Our Savior has created a Christmas store. The idea is that parents may come to this store and buy brand new gifts for their children at low prices. We ask that you understand that this is a service for parents and those who have foster children. This store will be filled with brand new toys for boys and girls. However, they will not be simply handed out. Parents will have the ability to shop for the toys they want their kids to have. The toys will be discounted to prices parents can afford.
Want to Help! Donate your new, unwrapped toys to Norfolk GM Auto Center for the Our Savior Christmas Gift Store!!!
The dates for this event are Friday December 8th from 4:00 a.m. until 9 p.m. and Saturday December 9th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Those wishing to shop only need to bring themselves and an ID for them to sign in. This way we can track attendance. Again, this is for parents and foster parents only. This ministry will take place at 2420 West Omaha Avenue. There will be signs for your people to come and buy toys. We do this out of the love we have for spreading the kingdom of God to those in Norfolk NE.
