Gift Box applications accepted starting Nov. 9

The Gift Box Program is a non-denominational, tax-deductible service provided through CrossRoad Community Church of Ellsworth 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 Christmas season through the program. Families in need in the county will be served through acceptance of applications and then, in turn, paired up with either businesses or individuals willing to sponsor a family during the season.

The program will accept applications for recipients and also for sponsors starting Tuesday, Nov. 9.

The program's office, located at the church, W7562 Hwy. 10, Ellsworth, will be open Tuesdays-Thursdays from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

Applicants should come to the office to fill out the applications.

Businesses or individuals who would like to sponsor a family through the program should also contact the office at 715-273-3678 on Tuesdays-Thursdays from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

All of the information, including registration and sponsorship forms, can be found at
