· As we wait for this event and Christmas itself, we are asking you to enter into the spirit of the "giving" season by contributing to our Race to the Bottom diaper drive.
· Our goal is to collect 500 boxes of diapers for Bare Necessities, a Clinton-based non-profit that distributes diapers and wipes to approximately 330 families who live along the Shoreline from Old Saybrook to Guilford.
· Drop off your donations by the church's front door anytime. They will be collected daily and moved to a safe place. Our hope is to organize them into a pyramidal "Christmas tree" in the Narthex on Dec. 12 before they are collected by Bare Necessities.
· All are invited to a safe, socially distanced holiday event on the grounds ot St. Andrew's at 4:30 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 12.
· Enjoy an organ concert of Christmas favorites performed by our own Grant Underwood. The church windows will be open so that all can hear our recently restored organ push out the sound.
· Formally hand over your Giving Tree gifts for needy children for presentation at our new outdoor Nativity Scene.
· Watch a "Christmas tree" rise in the Narthex, created with the diaper boxes donated for our Race to the Bottom.
