Thank you for your support of the 2013 Richmond Baptist Association Christmas Store. Because of your generosity and the generosity of other association churches, 220 families benefited from this important ministry. From those 220 families, 468 children will have Christmas gifts to look forward to receiving on Christmas day.
The RBA calls this ministry the Christmas Store because rather than simply handing out gifts, organizers ask that participants pay a very small price to shop. This empowers families, giving them a sense of dignity that they can provide Christmas gifts for their family. This is just as important a gift to the parents as the toys and clothes are to the children.
Thank you for the many toys and clothes you donated this year. And thanks to the Agape class for once again organizing funds to purchase 33 bicycles for the store.
