Christmas Ministry: Choose a Family November 26 or December 3

For two decades Grace and Holy Trinity Church has served families in need during the holidays by collecting and distributing clothing and gifts for school-aged children.  This year we continue this good work with Dumbarton Elementary School and Peter Paul Development Center.  Each family is comprised of one to three children.  Kim Vullo (570-430-1136, kvullo@yahoo.com) is the coordinator.   Read more.

Gifts must be returned by Sunday, December 10.  Details will be available when you choose your family.

You may also make a monetary donation (Marked “Christmas Ministry”) to help with purchases.  Grocery store gift cards are also welcome.

Historically, GHTC has funded grants through the program budget and money received from the Trustees of the Endowment.
