FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Concordia Lutheran High School students, faculty and staff are once again coming together to celebrate the season with the spirit of giving through the Christmas Bureau.
Each classroom and office has a family — 36 in all — for which they are gathering gifts, a Christmas dinner and household items. This year, 161 individuals will be impacted by the donations.
“We annual participate in the Christmas Bureau because we want to share God’s love with everyone,” said Stacey Salisbury, who organizes the project for Concordia. “This is the season of giving, and we want others to feel the joy of Christ’s love with us.”
Classes are currently collecting donations, and will wrap and put them on the truck on Tuesday, Dec. 4. Students will be wrapping gifts between 8-8:30 a.m. with delivering to the gym “cage” by 9 a.m. (beginning at about 8:45 a.m.). Students will then load the truck outside.
Concordia has participated in the Christmas Bureau for more than 40 years.
