Christ Com­mu­nity Church is invit­ing the com­mu­nity to par­tic­i­pate in their sec­ond an­nual CCC Serves.

This De­cem­ber Christ Com­mu­nity Church is invit­ing church and com­mu­nity mem­bers to par­tic­i­pate in their sec­ond an­nual CCC Serves, an ini­tia­tive de­signed to ben­e­fit the lo­cal com­mu­nity. Their goal is to meet over 1,000 needs in our com­mu­nity, by sup­port­ing in­di­vid­u­als and or­ga­ni­za­tions through­out the West Ch­ester area.

Or­ga­ni­za­tions that Christ Com­mu­nity will sup­port this year in­clude: the Sal­va­tion Army, Safe Har­bor of Ch­ester County, Ch­ester County Youth Cen­ter, Coatesville VA Hos­pi­tal, Ch­ester County Food Bank, lo­cal nurs­ing homes, first re­spon­ders, Young Lives, Ch­ester County Women’s Ser­vices, Coatesville Kids to Col­lege, and many oth­ers.

Some of the needs range from baby sup­plies and board books, gift cards for gro­ceries or gas, meals and baked goods, chil­dren’s toys and pa­ja­mas, gifts for teens and adults, clean­ing sup­plies, win­ter coats, gloves, boots, and more. By help­ing to meet the needs of teen moms, or those re­cov­er­ing from drug and al­co­hol ad­dic­tions, or our vet­er­ans, the peo­ple of Christ Com­mu­nity are look­ing to share God’s love in a tan­gi­ble way with those need­ing hope and help. They be­lieve that to­gether, we can make a dif­fer­ence in our com­mu­nity.

Do­na­tions are be­ing ac­cepted now. Gift tags with spe­cific needs will be avail­able at Christ Com­mu­nity Church on Sun­days Nov. 25 and Dec. 2 (8 a.m. to 1 p.m.), and do­na­tions are dropped off on Dec. 2 and Dec. 10 (8 a.m. to1 p.m.) at Christ Com­mu­nity Church, 1190 Phoenixville Pike, West Ch­ester.
