- Sunday | December 6, 2020
Westminster is once again partnering with the Bair Foundation to provide gifts for foster children in the local Pittsburgh area. This year, our project looks a little different in that we can’t do tree tags in our usual manner so we needed to get creative. We are opting for a few new strategies which include the following:
GIFT SELECTION: We have four ways to select a child to buy for this year:
Amazon Wish List: You can select a gift from our Amazon wish list by visiting www.westminstergiftingtree.com. We’ve added some info on the recipient in the item description. Please select the Bair Foundation shipping address when ordering.
Tags: We will have tags available outside of each church service on Sundays on our new Bair tag clothesline. If you are attending the services in person or would like to drop by from 9:00 a.m. until noon on Sunday morning, you can socially distance outside and select a tag (weather permitting).
SignUp Genius: We have created a new signup genius website where you can virtually select a tag and buy the items in the manner that you wish. signupgenius.com/go/20f0d4da8aa29abf85-angels1
Email a request: You can email Becky Weber at firstname.lastname@example.org with a tag request and she will send you some child options from which to choose. If you have a preference on age, gender, or type of child you would like to support (extra needs, teen in a group home, baby, etc.) please include that in the email. If you have a family or work group that would like to sponsor an extra needs child or family, we can also provide that information to you as well.
Unwrapped gifts are due by Sunday, December 6.
In person drop off: You may purchase and drop off an unwrapped gift during church business hours (Monday - Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.) to the church office. You may also drop off gifts on Sunday mornings; we will have bins outside for easy drop.
Shipping address: Prefer to shop online and ship a gift? This year, we’ve set up a special Bair Foundation shipping address to use when ordering online as opposed to having gifts mailed to the church. The church is not open during all delivery times (nights/weekends) and we would not want gifts to be misplaced/lost. Our volunteers will retrieve all the packages from the address provided and bring them back to the church to process.
Please ship all packages to:
The Bair Foundation
5225 Library Road #306
Bethel Park, PA 15102
