Chugiak Children’s Services Gift Collection

Once again we are partnered with Chugiak Children’s Services and are collecting gifts and goods for families who struggle to meet their basic day to day needs. CCS refers families in need and our church responds by giving these families gifts, food, and assurance that they are loved.

Sign-up sheets and donation containers will be placed in the back of the UMCC sanctuary. Each sheet details the ages/genders of family members along with their gift requests.  Please consider providing needed items for an entire family or perhaps individuals of several families.


  • No digital/electronic/MP3 gadgets please.
  • Snowsuits, coats, hats, boots, etc. for children and winter accessories for all are needed.
  • Fun activity gifts for the children.

Anyone desiring to wrap their purchases may do so, but be certain to attach a label naming the item. Unwrapped gifts will be wrapped after the second service on December 13th. All hands are needed to wrap and box gifts. For added fun, bring your favorite crock-pot creation, finger food, bread, vegetable, fruit plate, or dessert to share with all.

For questions, please contact John Mitchell or Sharolyn Baldwin, or email
