Tis the Season…
The RHUMC Missions Committee is thrilled to announce that Trek to the Tree will be taking place in 2020, albeit virtually. This is your opportunity to buy a gift for a child aged 1-12 or a $25 Target gift card for youth aged 13 or older who are served by Toberman Neighborhood Center. Since RHUMC is not yet meeting in person, we are not taking sign-ups this year. Instead, you have several ways to participate.Have your heart set on buying a toy? That would be great. Here are your options:
- Order directly from Toberman’s Amazon Wish list accessible at GIFT LINK. Toys will be delivered directly to Toberman.
- Buy a toy and either drop it at RHUMC or have it sent directly to Toberman at 131 N Grand Ave, San Pedro, CA 90731. You can drop toys at RHUMC during the week when the office is open or on Saturday, December 5 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm during communion pick-up. Please DO NOT wrap the toys.
Want a simpler way to give? Cash is a great gift as it allows us to buy gift cards, which are highly valued in today’s difficult economic climate. In the last several years RHUMC has given around 150 gift cards. We hope to double that this year and give 300 $25 cards! No need to buy the cards yourself as our Noucha Jasanis is on tap to take care of that for you. It’s easy to help: write a check payable to RHUMC, put Trek to the Tree in the memo line and either mail the check to RHUMC or drop it off during communion pick up on December 5. You can also donate online at rhumc.org. Please be sure to include Trek to the Tree in the designated giving line.
Whichever way you choose to participate, please note that we need all toys and monetary donations at Toberman or RHUMC no later than Saturday, December 12. Thanks, as always, for your generosity. And thank you to Noucha Jasanis for her 18th year of coordinating Trek to the Tree!!
