The Spirit of Giving
The Spirit of Giving is a special event designed just for children and teens who have experienced the death of a parent/guardian, and have attended a Mourning Hope grief support program.
Families will enjoy dinner and create a holiday project together (thanks to Southwood!) Then, school-age kids will have time to select and wrap a gift for their caregiver, and participate in a craft activity. Daycare will be provided for children under the age of 5.
While the kids are shopping and wrapping, free massages for caregivers will be offered, along with some tips and helpful information about how to care for oneself while navigating the stresses of the holiday season.
There is no cost to attend this event thanks to the generosity of Southwood Lutheran Church. But, in order to ensure an adequate number of gifts, craft projects, and food, families must register by December 4. Please note that space is limited, so we encourage you to register early.
