This year SHIM is doing something different with their Angel Tree giving. They are collecting cash/check donations or $25 gift cards instead of specific gifts. Their idea is that donations of gift cards will allow SHIM families to purchase gifts and thus participate themselves in the joy of Christmas shopping for their loved ones.
Our youth have prepared a “Fall Giving Tree” to raise funds to purchase gift cards for SHIM before their distribution date in early December. You can see the “Fall Giving Tree” in the hallway outside the Friendship Room. Pick a leaf and make a donation for a $25 gift card, or donate one of the designated gift cards to bring Christmas joy to South Hills families in need.
The Visa gift cards being providing to SHIM families are Giant Eagle, Walmart, Target, Amazon, Visa and MasterCard. Your cash/check donations will be used to purchase Giant Eagle gift cards which can be used to buy a variety of other gift cards and, if bought through Bower Hill, have the added benefit of providing additional funds for Bower Hill Church.
