Advent Giving 2021
Three ways to give this year!
This Advent season, you’ll find new ways to fulfill the wishes of our partner organizations. Gift cards provide our partners and their families the freedom to choose their gifts. Board games provide families with hours of fun!
We’ve provided three options but don’t feel limited to one choice. Feel free to buy more than one gift card and/or board game. The more, the merrier!
Find out how you can help make this holiday season a little brighter for others. For more information, contact Sarah Casey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Buy a Gift Card for a Floris UMC/Restoration Partner
This Advent, you can buy a gift card for one (or more!) of our partner organizations. Then, you can mail or bring it to Floris UMC during the week (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.) or Sunday worship (9 a.m. or 11 a.m.).
This year, our partners include:
- Angle Tree – gift cards will support the families of prisoners
- Hutchison Elementary School – gift cards will support families who need gas, groceries and holiday items
- INOVA Care Connection for Children – gift cards will help families and their children who have special health needs
- Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter – gift cards will support families and children who receive empowerment services
You can buy an Amazon, Visa, Wal-Mart or Target gift card. To indicate that the card goes to a specific partner organization, write their name on the envelope before you mail or bring it to Floris UMC.
Thank you for supporting our partners!
Buy a Board Game for an Elementary School Student
If you’d like to give a gift this year, consider buying a board game for an elementary school student. Our partner organizations include Forest Edge Elementary School, Hutchison Elementary School and more.
Bring an unwrapped game to Floris UMC during the week (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.) or Sunday worship (9 a.m. or 11 a.m.).

Buy a Gift Card for a Specific Child
