Breakthrough: Christmas Store
This winter season, TRC will participate in a local opportunity to serve through Breakthrough: Christmas Store.  The Christmas Store is an opportunity for local communities to purchase gifts to give to underprivileged families in the East Garfield Park of Chicago.  Local families will be able to “choose” gifts at the Breakthrough: Christmas Store at a fraction of the cost.  The Christmas Store will be “open” and operated by Breakthrough on Saturday 12/15.

Please consider donating (unwrapped) gifts for kids or teens, winter clothing, household items, or gift cards to support this effort. Gift details and guidelines can be found online at Breakthrough’s website. Please drop off any donation items at the Welcoming Table by Sunday 12/9.  Thank you for your kindness this advent season!

Women’s Ministry: Bags of Love
The TRC Women’s Ministry will host a Bags of Love packing party after service on Sunday 12/9, during which the TRC women will pack care packages for the homeless and underprivileged.  All items will be provided, and the packing party will take place near the lobby after the Lisle and City service respectively.  Starting Sunday 12/16, the packed bags will be available for the congregation with a suggested donation of $5-10.  All donation proceeds will go to Reclaim 13, an organization that combats sex trafficking.
