Christmas for Children

The Clear Lake United Methodist Church will be sponsoring the “Christmas for Children” drive again this year to provide gifts for area children who otherwise may not receive gifts at Christmas time. “Christmas for Children” is designed to reach more needs of our local community. We are coming up on our 28th year and are so grateful for all of the support that we have received from everyone.

Anyone wishing to donate items to “Christmas for Children” can do so by leaving them at True Value Hardware, CB Styles, Northern Roots Family Spinal Care, and Clear Lake Physical Therapy from November 2, 2021 through December 11, 2021. Also check for barrels at your church.

Suggestions are toys, games, art supplies, body wash sets, lotion and perfume/cologne, tools, videos, DVDs (nothing higher than PG-13 please) appropriate Music CDs, books, etc. Please do not wrap your gifts. Donations of wrapping paper and tape are also welcome.  Monetary donations for the purpose of gifts and clothes, coats, shoes and boots should be mailed to Christmas for Children c/o Debi Ahrens PO Box 42, Clear Lake, WI 54005. Please make checks payable to Christmas for Children.

All gifts will be given to children ages 0-18 in the Clear Lake School District Area.

If you are in need of gifts for your children or if you know of other families in the Clear Lake School District area who are in need of Christmas gifts for their children, we would like to hear from you. Call Debi Ahrens 715-441-5477 or Diane Blanchard 715-263-2690 (if no answer, please leave a message). All names will be kept strictly confidential.

We hope to make this “Christmas for Children” a great success and in order to do so, we need your help. As in the past, we thank you for your support.
