For the second year, Leopold Elementary School has partnered with three local churches to support their students and families for Christmas. City on a Hill Church, along with the Church, and Christ Church hosted a Christmas Toy Shop on Tuesday, December 14, serving 50 families in the school community and neighborhood.
Pastor Jeff Franklin of City on a Hill noted that the event was an unexpected blessing of the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year, with Madison public schools still closed, he was able to offer use of the church building to bring families in to shop for toys for their children. The event was such a hit for both the parents and the congregations, that is simply made sense to host it again this year even though schools are now open. While parents shop, children can make crafts, play games, and decorate cookies.
All three congregations help provide volunteers, financial support and donations.
