As part of our Heroes for Hope partnership with Jackson R2 Schools, we are participating in their Hope 4 Christmas event. We are asking you to be a Hope 4 Christmas Child Sponsor. Sponsors will shop for and purchase the following for each child you sponsor:

1. One pajama set

2. One package of underwear

3. One package of socks

4. One shirt

5. One pair of pants

6. One pair of shoes

7. One toy/wish list item

8. One small stocking-stuffer item

In the coming weeks, after you sign up to be sponsor, you will be given the clothing and shoe sizes and the child's wish list. Sponsors are encouraged to spend at least $150 per child.   Fill out the form below  or call the office to sign up to be a Hope 4 Christmas Child Sponsor.

After you have purchased your items, please DO NOT wrap them.  Families will receive wrapping paper and supplies as part of their gift. It is important that each item is labeled with the following information: Family number, boy/girl or mom/dad and age.   Please drop off your labeled items to Cox Memorial Hall (225 S High St) by Monday, December 4th at 4:30 P.M.


If you would like to donate funds and have us do the shopping you can write a check to New McKendree UMC with "Hope 4 Christmas" in the memo line, or you can CLICK HERE to pay with a debit or credit card. The link defaults to $150, if you would like to sponsor multiple children you can simply edit the amount.
