Gift of Hope Toy Collection
Daily from 11/01/2020 to 12/06/2020
Here’s how we can each be a part... from November 1-December 6, we need to collect toys for boys and girls ages 8-12. Normally we would collect food donations, but God truly blessed us this year with a grant that allows us to provide gift cards to grocery stores for the families we are helping. Yay God! Toy donations can be dropped off in the collection boxes in the church lobby.
Do you want to give a toy, but don't have time to shop? You can purchase a toy voucher, and we'll do the shopping for you! Toy vouchers can be purchased in person, or online by donating through the link below, or via text-to-give. Text "GOH25" to give $25, or any amount to 813-308-0608.
What Is Gift of Hope?
Bay Life seeks to be a church that shares the love of God with our community while also helping meet their specific, everyday needs. Gift of Hope is a partnership we have with more than 10 other local churches to help families in need within our Greater Brandon community during the holidays.
Christmas is holly and jolly for many families...but for some, the holidays are a very exhausting, stressful, and worrisome season. Bay Life teams up with other churches to put on a three day event in which allows families to receive their family's holiday meal, and pick out gifts for their family members, for free! This year, Gift of Hope will be December 17-19, 2020 at First Baptist Church Brandon (216 Parsons Ave, Brandon, FL 33510).
