The John 3:16 Center invites the community to make Christmas brighter for area families by participating in Christmas Outreach 2021.

There are a couple of ways to participate in the outreach program:

• Sponsor a child for a $100 contribution. Sponsorship provides a couple outfit (including socks, shoes and underwear), four toys (including a puzzle or game), a book, hygience products and a Bible for each family.

• Drop off new and unwrapped toys for children ages birth to 15 years at any John 3:16 Center location at Lake Gaston, Littleton or Roanoke Rapids. Toys should be valued under $25.
