Herizon House Christmas Giving Tree
The outreach committee has selected Herizon House as our Christmas project. At the entrance of the Worship Centre is a tree with almost one hundred tags hanging on it. They include such items as a mop, a basketball, makeup kit, shampoo, small microwave oven or hand mixer. As you can see the range is quick large this year. Pick a tag up from the tree (you can read them all and pick the one you like the best). Do not wrap the item but bring it back to the church on Sunday Dec. 9th or Sunday Dec 16th (or during the week during office hours Tuesday to Friday 8:30 to 4). Place it under the tree.
What do you do when you must leave a spouse that is attacking you? In Durham you can go to Herizon House. They have 30 beds for fleeing spouses and their children. It is transitional housing, as the staff help the clients move on to a new, safer environment. You can read more about them at https://www.herizonhouse.com/
