Gift Box Program to accept applications beginning Nov. 7

The Gift Box Program is a non-denominational tax deductible service provided through CrossRoad Community Church to meet the needs of people in Pierce County who are in need and find themselves upon hard times during the Christmas holiday season with the purpose of sharing God's love through matching applicants with donors to provide Christmas gifts.

It is the church's intention to help those in need for the season through the program. Organizers will serve families in need in the county by accepting applications and then, in turn, paring them up with either businesses or individuals wishing to sponsor a family during the season.

The business/individual will then purchase the items stated on the application and return them to the church wrapped, labeled and ready to be picked up by the recipients.

The GBP office will accept applications starting Monday, Nov. 7. Applicants should come to the office to fill out the application or go to the website and click on the GBP icon on the front page and print off the forms. The office is located at CrossRoad Community Church, W7562 Hwy. 10-63, Ellsworth, WI 54011. It will be open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

They can be mailed to CCC, W7562 Hwy. 10-63, Ellsworth, WI 54011 or fax them to 715-273-4608. Recipients please make sure to include proof of Pierce County residency with registration.
