Crossing Church Helps With Angel Tree Project

The Crossing Church sows seed into the community each Christmas and for the sixth year in a row it is involved with the Angel Tree project. This year they are helping Clair Mel Elementary and Potter Elementary schools collect donations for needy children. The biggest need is bicycles since for many of the students it is their only transportation to and from school.  Families are chosen by school social workers and teachers who see a need. To adopt a family click the http://meettheneed.org/event.php?id=100423&orgtemp=120 link on the Crossing Church website. This website lists each child and a detailed list of desired items as well as an overall family need. The Crossing Church is located at 10130 Tuscany Ridge Drive in Tampa. For more information call 626-0783
