southwood christmas project 2020

Current Funds Raised Will Fill 36 Baskets

As part of Southwood's emphasis to reach out beyond the church walls - we have planned our Christmas Project for 2020 around providing food baskets to families in need.  During this pandemic, statistics have shown that 54 Million Americans have struggled with food insecurity.  The percentages of families that are having to turn to food panties and the like have sky rocketed.  We want to reach these families and show them that God loves them and Southwood cares about them too! 


We've put together a plan to provide food baskets that will cost approximately $75 per family. 

These baskets will include the supplies to prepare a full Christmas dinner as well as groceries to provide dinners for the remainder of a week.  They will also include goodie bags for each child in the family.


How can you help?  First, pray for the project to be a success.  For this to happen, we need to be able to find ample supplies on grocery store shelves, we need to identify the families in our community that would most benefit from these baskets and we will need the funding to cover the costs of the supplies.  Secondly, pray about what kind of financial gift you might be able to give.  Then give your very best gift!  We know and understand that many of you are working hard just to be able to give God's tithe.  If that is the case for you, you can contribute to the project with your prayers and by spreading the word to others that might be able to help.


We will be collecting all through the month of November and will keep you updated on how many baskets we are going to be able to provide as we go.
