Neighborhood Services, Inc. Christmas Gift Adoption Program
The time has come again to help NSI bring joy to children on Christmas morning! 
You have a chance to “adopt” a child or more than one child. From this list provided by NSI (list updated 11/17/20), choose one child or more. Check with Carolyn Vander Stouw (614-316-7367 or to make sure someone else hasn’t chosen that same child. Once approved, spend about $50.00 per child. Wrap the gift and put the child’s ID number on the outside of the package. Bring the gift to church during office hours (M-F 9:00am – 3:00pm) by Tuesday, December 1st or take directly to NSI at 1950 N 4th Street, Suite J, Columbus 43201 by Thursday, December 3rd. If you take your gift personally to NSI, let Carolyn know.
If you’d rather not shop, you can donate money, cash or check, by Tuesday, December 1st. Please make to check out to St. Stephen’s with “NSI Christmas Gifts” in the memo line, and Carolyn will use that money to shop for Christmas gifts.
