You can be an child’s hero this Christmas, and bless an entire family. This is the season for giving!

For many students, the one meal they get during the day is the one they get from school. Horizon Community Church has a program to fill backpacks every Friday at Tualatin Elementary and provides meals for students over the weekend. With Christmas coming up, the church has partnered with Tualatin Elementary again to provide meals for students during their upcoming winter break. Simply go to the front office (23370 SW Boones Ferry Rd.) and ask for a Community Care bag. Inside it you’ll find a shopping list – taking the guess work out of what to provide. Return the filled bags back to the church by December 10. On December 15, you are welcome to come back to Horizon Community Church to help sort and put together the donations into food boxes. You can also bring gift donations of new, unwrapped toys to make Christmas even more special for them!
Beyond the holiday, you can help with filling backpacks on Fridays, or become a Lunch Buddy. For more information, contact Julie at
