Outreach Opportunities
Starting October 12 th  360 Communities is also kicking off their Armful of Love holiday program. COT is not sponsoring this program but would like to make Nativity members aware of this opportunity. Through this program 360 Communities matched families in need with sponsors. Armful of Love helps provide joy to children while alleviating stress for parents who are unable to afford holiday gifts for their families. Colin and I have participated the last couple of years and the ‘gifts’ are usually practical items (winter coat, clothing, towels) and a toy for each child.
