SWEM needs your help to make a difference for families less fortunate!

Christmas Dinner Donations must brought to the church no later than 11 AM on Sunday December 13, 2020.

Christmas baskets are designed for families of three to four people. Please donate standard sized cans and 16 ounce boxes for each item. For each basket, please provide the following:

1 fruit cocktail or canned fruit

2 soups

1 large fruit juice

1 instant mashed potatoes

2 regular or 1 large can of sweet potatoes

3 canned vegetables (e.g., corn, peas, beans)

1 cranberry sauce

1 bag stuffing

1 boxed dessert (e.g., gelatin or pudding, cake mix/ frosting, or pie crust/filling)

Additionally, please add $10 cash or check donation per basket to cover the cost of meat, eggs and margarine that SWEM will provide. Checks can be made out to S.W.E.M.. Rather than putting the money in your basket, please give it to your SWEM representative.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not have refrigeration for the baskets, so do not include perishables. We are also not able to accept or distribute toys.
