Christmas for Classmates 

With Thanksgiving coming up, Cubs for Christ (CfC) is gearing up for our Annual Christmas for Classmates collection.  If you are new to LJH, CfCm is where we collect gifts and/or money to buy gifts for LJH students that may not get presents otherwise.  There are several organizations on campus that help us out and each year we help about 25 LJH students and we hope to do the same this year. If you know of any students in need, please click here to add them to our list.

There are a couple of ways you can help.

  1. Buy a T-shirt or Hoodie - We only have two days left to sell as many shirts/hoodies as possible.  Click here to order yours today.

  1. “Adopt” a student - You will be given the student’s wish list for ideas on what to buy.  You can buy the items yourself or partner up with others.  You do not have to buy all the items on the wish lists (some of these kids dream big).  We do ask that you buy at least one hoodie/jacket.  After purchasing the gifts, we ask you gift wrap the items.  CfC will provide a Bible for each student.  We will also try to make sure that each student gets a bath/deodorant gift set.  When shopping please keep in mind that most of these students will have to ride the bus home with their gifts.  Cubs for Christ will supply 2 reusable shopping bags for your wrapped items so that it is easier for the student to carry home.  (For bussing purposes, we need items to fit in the bags).  

  1. Donate money - If you would like to help but don’t have time to go shopping, you can donate and we will do the shopping for you. Checks can be made payable to Cubs for Christ.

  1. Donate generic gifts - If you’re out and about and find a great deal on items that JH kids would like, purchase and donate them.  (There are a lot of good deals on Black Friday).  We will sort and distribute them to students on our list.

  1. Pray - If you are a praying person, please pray for this project.  There are several needy kids at our school and we want to help as many as possible.
From now until Dec 12, we will collect generic boy and generic girl items (that most JH kids would like), bibles, bath sets, and monetary donations.  With the monetary donations, we will buy items from student wish lists.  Hypothetically, each student on our list will receive a bath set, a bible, a hoodie/jacket, a small gift (boy/girl), and maybe a few other goodies like candy canes.  

We will bag these up and hand them out before the students leave on Friday, December 16.
If you would like to make any type of donation just let me know so that I can start to get an idea of what we will have.
My email address is sbmcfarlain@livingstonisd.com.
Thanks for your help and for always caring for LJH Students!
