Morning Star Church is asking St. Charles County residents and businesses to grant a Morning Star Christmas Wish for a family or foster child. Many of us revel in the holiday season, however for some in our community, the coming of winter means struggling to stay warm, or feel the joy in the season.
“The holidays are an especially challenging time for many of the families we work with,” states Lead Pastor Mike Schreiner. “By granting a Christmas Wish, community members can spread joy to a foster child or family with a special gift.”
Every year, Morning Star Church partners with local non-profits and school districts to provide Christmas gifts to under-resourced families in their community. This year, their goal is to grant the wishes of 400 families and 100 foster children.
Granting a Morning Star Christmas Wish is easy. Anyone interested in adopting a family or foster child can simply visit www.mscwired.org/christmaswishes.
