Once a year, Riverside Church reaches out into the community on a small but significant scale – making a big difference in the life of one person or family , just when they need it most.
Each year, a few months before Christmas we take up a collection of coins and bless someone in our community who just needs a brighter day! We keep our ear to the ground and listen out for someone who is doing it tough and then, just prior to Christmas, we surprise them with a gift of love. We encourage everyone at Riverside to get involved if they can – we always get a wonderful response from those we bless.
It’s just one gesture of love, but it makes a big difference to the recipient, just in time for Christmas.
