Angel Tree for Salvation Army & UMC Children's Home
During the Christmas Season Broadmoor provides Christmas gifts for the children at the Louisiana Methodist Children’s Home in Ruston, La., and children at the Salvation Army. The Angel Trees will be located in the Fellowship Area and by the Reception Desk Sunday, November 20 through Sunday, December 4. There will be cards for each child with their requested wish. Several of the requests this year are gift cards. Please complete one card with your name and phone number and place in the decorative box by the tree. Take the other card home with you and return with your gift. Please do not wrap the gift, but you may include gift wrap or bags if you would like to do so. The deadline for Angel Tree is Wednesday, December 7, by noon. If you bring your gift by during the week, please leave at the church office and not under one of the trees. Please direct questions to Rev. Peter Gaughan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Arthur Circle Santa Shop
Kids Hope and Broadmoor UMC will help with the annual Santa Shop fundraiser at Arthur Circle Elementary. The children come in at different times and buy small donated items that are then wrapped that they give to their family. The money raised goes back to the school to buy items for the school children. We encourage you to donate new or very gently used items for the Santa Shop, such as frames, games, cards, note pads, stationary, cologne, scarves, ties, costume jewelry, flashlights, and camo products. Donation bins will be located at the Welcome Center and Reception Desk. Volunteers are needed to help with wrapping and shopping on the mornings of December 12-16. If you can donate a few hours please contact Jan Bookter at email@example.com or 318-632-5874.
