Our desire this December is to help you and your family live a Christmas of Compassion not Consumption. One way we do that is by inviting 12 incredible local non-profit organizations to join us at KGF on Sunday December 3rd in the HUB. You will find tangible ways to volunteer as individuals and as a family.
Listed below are some of the organizations that will be looking for items that you may be willing to donate.
