Event Details

White Gift Sunday dates back to 1904 in Ohio. The wife of a Methodist minister and her two daughters came up with the idea of giving gifts wrapped in white paper at Christmas to give to people in need. The white paper allowed all gifts to look the same so no one with only a few dollars to spend would be embarrassed by what they had to donate. The White Gift shares in the spirit of Christ and the God of love at Christmas.

We celebrate White Gifts Sunday by bringing toys for children aged 2-12 and/or personal hygiene products or treats for youth 13-17 or non-perishable food items for those in our community who don’t have money for the extra nice things we enjoy at Christmas time.

Please use a white bag instead of wrapping your gifts so that we can distribute appropriate gifts to each person.
