CHRISTMAS AT ADA JENKINS

We're excited to announce that plans are underway for the 2022 Christmas at Ada Jenkins and we need your help! This year we will be providing Christmas for about 22 families, their 50 children plus 25 single adults in the Economic Mobility program. Each family is given a food-only gift card and the children will receive winter clothing and toys selected just for them from their wish lists. The single adults will also receive a food-only gift card and a variety of much-needed items and gifts also selected just for them from their wish lists. Here's how you can help:


VOLUNTEER! DONATE! VOLUNTEER!

Volunteers needed - to shop, wrap gifts, make boxes, set up the workshop, help on pickup day, and extra hands anytime are always appreciated!! 


WE HAVE AN IMMEDIATE NEED FOR SHOPPERS!!

Please contact Sebra Maines if you are interested!

Monetary donations - It takes approximately $100 to sponsor an individual child, a family, or an adult. No donation is too small! This ministry relies heavily on your generous gifts and this year we are asking for your continued support. Please consider

making a donation to Christmas at Ada Jenkins. Make your check payable to Mt. Zion and write 'Christmas Ada Jenkins' in the memo line. Thank you!
