M.O.M.’s Christmas Stores – Opening in December

Every December, the Military Outreach Ministries (M.O.M.) set up  Christmas stores to benefit our San Diego military families.  Children of enlisted military families are invited to come and select (shop) for a toy.

Please help them to stock  on toys for children baby – 14 years old.  We can only accept toys that are unwrapped.  Bring unwrapped toys to church on Sundays or to the office, Monday – Friday during office hours (9:00 am – 4:00 pm).  Last year, we served over 400 families and we hope to do more this year.  A few SUGGESTIONS: Board Games, Balls, Action Figures, Dolls, Toy Cars/Trucks, and $10-$15 gift cards.  We will host 4 “Toy Stores” and the first will be December 3rd.

Contact Carolyn Taxer through the church office at (619) 582-8480 if you have any questions or would like to volunteer.  Inquiries can also be sent to our e-mail office@fpsd.org.
