Advent Mission Project 2020

This Advent the Missions Committee of Lakeside Presbyterian Church, along with Session and Deacons, have decided to support San Francisco families by providing gift cards and gifts to families selected through Compass Family Services’ Adopt-a-Family program. This program pairs individuals, families and groups with Compass families who are homeless or at imminent risk and lack resources to buy Christmas gifts.  For many families, these gifts will be the only gifts they receive at Christmastime.

Online Shopping

The donor purchases gifts for a Compass family from an Amazon wish list or registry from Target or similar store. All items are delivered directly to the family.

Digital Adopt-a-Family

The donor provides gift cards (no physical items) to a Compass family based on a gift card wish list of retailers.

Are you ready to help?

Please contact Margaret Elam by November 1 so the church can let Compass Family Services know how many families Lakeside will be supporting. Margaret will follow up with you after Nov. 1.
