Christmas Toy Drive

Can You Help Us?

Arvon Baptist Church has partnered with Dollar General of Fork Union this Christmas Season to help make a few children's Christmas Extra Special this year! General Manager Jason has been collecting toys for our community at his store for a few weeks now. The collection box is now at our church building in the lobby, and now it's our turn!

Here's the first way that You can help!

Our church doors will be open from Today, December 12 - Sunday, December 22 at 9:00 PM. Please bring a brand new, unwrapped gift for a boy or girl through age 13 to our lobby and simply place it in our collection box. That's all you have to do!

So, while you are out shopping this season, please consider purchasing a small gift for a child in our community, then, just drop it off at the church.

Here's the Second way YOU can help!


We need some Christmas Elves to help wrap all the toys!

On Monday, December 23, we need a few good Christmas Gift Wrappers to join us in the Fellowship Hall to wrap all of the gifts that are donated. We will supply everything needed to wrap the gifts so just show up at 7:00 PM! Have your supper at home, but leave plenty of room for coffee and dessert! I have ordered several Pies from the Corner Coffee Junction to fuel us up! Apple Pie, Pumpkin Pie, and Chocolate Chess - You Know you want a slice!!!

Here's the Third way YOU can help!

We need some Sleigh Drivers to deliver the wrapped gifts!

Can you spare up to one hour on Tuesday, December 24 - Yes, that's Christmas Eve Day - to light up a child's eyes? The address(es) will be ready for you and the packages will be well marked. All you have to do is deliver the gifts, say Merry Christmas, and tell the family that Jesus loves them! That's it! You can do this any time during the day from 9 AM - 5 PM - it's up to you!!! You can deliver these gifts on your way to a party, while you're out shopping, or make it a special family event! Not only will this bless the receiving family, but your family will be blessed as well as you embody the very essence of the Christmas Message - Emmanuel - God With Us!

Please let me know how you can help with this project. Also, while I have identified a few families already that we will deliver to, let me know if you know of a family that would be blessed by this effort. Time is short, so please reply soon!
