On Sunday the 7th of December 2014, Scots Church will once again be holding an “Empty Christmas Tree” service. During this service Congregational Members are asked to bring along an appropriate toy for a child aged between 0 and 13; or a monetary donation that will be used to purchase a gift. These gifts are donated to the OARS “presents for prisoners’ children programme”.
OARS supports the children of prisoners both in South Australia and interstate so presents that are ‘easy’ to post are most welcome. Gifts should be left unwrapped (donations of wrapping paper welcome) and should not contain any depiction of violence e.g. any weapons, police vehicles, fire engines, ambulances, soldiers etc. as this can be quite traumatic for children who may have witnessed their parent being arrested or hurt in any way. Please consider this worthy cause and the children and prisoners it supports.
