“I want to help, but I’m too far away.” Are you too far away to join a work crew? There are many ways to help
get our four families home for Christmas. Church groups are sponsoring kitchen showers, angel tree projects,
and fundraisers to benefit Anahuac Comeback. Maybe you can sponsor a fundraiser or shower. Individuals are
sending gift cards and checks and household goods. Each family has a queen sized bed, stove, refrigerator,
couch, and not much more. There are many options for helping. Remember us as you do your Christmas shop-
ping, and select a few gifts that will maker these families comfortable in their newly restored houses.

Think of all the things you use in your home, things these people need to get settled: broom, mop, cleaning sup-
plies, dishes, pots, pans, baking pans, flatware, towels, sheets, blankets, twin bed, night stands, easy chair,
lamps, door mat, TV, microwave, mixer, crock pot, light bulbs, vacuum cleaners. You get the point. They need
lots of things. We are registered at Target and Wal-Mart so you can shop online, or send a gift card and our vol-
unteers will shop for you. Another special need is for a kitchen table and chairs for each family. Think of the
blessings of gathering with your family around the table for a meal together! Donation Deadline: 12-13--09
