(Right) Jack readies himself to carry out a full shopping bag of Christmas goodies he purchased for his family at the Messiah Lutheran Ministries Christmas Kids’ Shoppe, Dec. 8. A total of 187 children, from 4-11 years, selected 889 gifts for their family members--moms, dads, sisters, brothers, grandmas, grandpas and some teachers, too. “Messiah is very grateful for all the community support we received.  So many businesses donated merchandise for these kids to select.  And many people volunteered to be Santa helpers or wrappers, taggers and baggers of all these gifts. As many family members shared, the kids are learning the importance of ‘giving,’ said Barb Ostrum of Messiah Lutheran Church. Children are invited to select five Christmas gifts for family members totally free of charge and have them gift wrapped (above) as well.
