Donations for Seafarers’ Christmas Boxes

Tacoma Seafarers’ Center is a Christian non-profit organization serving the seafarers who call in the Port of Tacoma. Their purpose is to meet the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of the seafarers.

On Sunday December 9, during Education hour (9:30am), our whole church will gather to pack and wrap 100 Christmas boxes that will be given out to the Seafarers. These packages contain practical items as well as a Christian Christmas message.

We need your help to gather the items that will go in each box. Receptacles for these donations will be outside the Life Together Hall and in the Ed Building.
