Again this year, Augustana's Confirmation class will be supporting 100 foster children of Lutheran Social Services of Illinois (LSSI) through organizing a gift-giving project. There is a gift tree in the narthex with paper ornaments on and around it. Each ornament has the name, age, gender and gift suggestions of a child on it. Please take one, buy and wrap a present (worth about $20) with the child's full name on it, and bring the gift back to the church to place under the tree by DECEMBER 14! A representative from LSSI will come and pick up the gifts to distribute them to the kids. This is a wonderful way to bring some joy into children's lives who do not have much for Christmas. We all know how thrilled children become when they receive tokens of love in the gifts of Christmas.
