Pear Orchard has supported Mission First (and Neighborhood Christian Center) in downtown Jackson for the past several years. One of the ways we have supported them is by helping with their Christmas store each December.
Mission First/Neighborhood Christian Center sponsors a Christmas store for the children who attend their after-school program. Many of the parents are unable to provide essentials for their children, so they are given the opportunity to shop (for a small fee) for their child. Each child is provided with a new school uniform, book bag, devotional, some toys and essentials such as underwear, socks, pajamas, and coats.
This year we will be providing coats for the students. If you would like to help please visit https://buff.ly/2zLhp7k to sign up to donate coats or read more about giving money toward a coat. Please note: in the past, we have donated fleeces, but they are wanting winter coats this year.
