‘Jingle Bell Rock’ has been playing in the stores since September and that means only one thing…. Christmas is coming! That also means the IT Tender Christmas Parties for our 200+ clients are on their way and we are pretty excited!
IT Tender believes in a holistic approach to ministry and Christmas allows us great opportunities to care for our clients physically and spiritually. Through our Christmas Parties we are able to share the love and hope of Jesus Christ by teaching the gospel, and it is also a time when we are able to give some physical assistance. Every year we aim to provide a simple gift of groceries and/or hygiene supplies to the children and families we are committed to serving.
In order to fully invest in the children and have fun with them, IT Tender will be hosting three separate parties this year:
· November 30: Educational Programs (100+ clients); hosted at Jollibee with gifts donated by and volunteers attending from Extreme Response International
· December 7: Putatan Night Life and Food For Life (70+ clients); food from Jollibee sponsored by and volunteers attending from The Rotary Club, Philippines.
· December 13: Alabang Night Life (25+ clients); a simple party at our drop in centre where we are praying to be able to provide a meal from Jollibee
Please join us in prayer as we prepare for, fundraise for, and host our parties. We have a financial target this year of 80,000 PHP/ $2,000 USD but we know that by the grace of God all things are possible and we are trusting in Him that He will provide all our financial needs and for all the needs of all His beautiful children.
It takes only $10 USD/CDN or 420 PHP to provide a meal, gifts, hygeine supplies, and groceries for a child and his/her family.
For more information on how you can support, volunteer or donate for our Christmas Parties, please contact John Coffey (firstname.lastname@example.org)
