Mick's up Ideas for Christmas


Are you last-minute shopping?  If so, you're not the only one. 

If you're looking for something extra special, you can make this a most memorable Christmas for someone in need.

Looking back on this year, there are some families that need our help. 

For example, Mick's up on Relief Efforts tells about flooding that hit New York State, Pennsylvania, and surrounding areas.  There are still families without proper heat, finished walls, or even housing.  Let's not forget about them this Christmas.  Read some more at Spreading holiday cheer in Owego.

As we fill our house with more toys and "stuff," we will try to give away things we no longer use, so kidderz who lost toys and other belongings can have some "new" ones.

For more information on how to give, look up Rebuild Owego, read some of the recent posts in Neighbor Helping Neighbors - Greene County, learn from an article such as After the Flood: Prattsville, or contact OwegoAskForHelp@gmail.com

Enjoy this week leading up to Christmas, and think outside the box for a mix of ideas.


“They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
   “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
   “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

Matthew 25:44-46 (NIV)
