CHILDREN’S CHRISTMAS PROGRAMS
As we enter into fall we begin to think about the upcoming holidays and begin our planning for the season of giving, please keep those in need in mind when you are out shopping. We like to give the birth through school aged children a special Christmas gift either from a list that the parents provide or an age appropriate gift card. We strive to keep the gifts or groups of gifts value at $25.00 for each child.
Last year we provided 250 gifts to our Open Doors family’s children. We need to have all the gifts collected by December 5th. Open Doors has moved into their new building located at 19360 Tomlinson Road next to the Monon Trail Elementary School. Hours are 9:00am to 11:45am Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. LeAnne Zentz is the new Christmas Toy Coordinator.

Gifts may also be dropped off at leAnne’s office: ERA Real Estate Links located at 4630 Lisborn Drive, Carmel, IN 46033. Her office is open Monday – Friday 9:00 – 5:00.
