children need your help.

The 40th annual Omega Chi (Christian Service Organization at Texas Wesleyan University) Christmas party for underprivileged children is scheduled for Thursday, December 9, 2010.  This has become a very important and worthy tradition on the campus of Texas Wesleyan – on that needs your support in order to continue.  For some children in the Polytechnic community this may be the only Christmas party they will have and the only gifts they will receive.

The party will begin at 5:30pm and it will consist of games, snacks, singing, and a special visit from Santa Claus, who will distribute gifts.  We will have the party at the Polytechnic Community Center and will conclude by 8:00pm.  You help is needed to support the children.

A list of names of needy or underprivileged children from the Polytechnic area has been obtained from the community center.  We will have about a hundred and thirty children ranging in age from infancy to teenagers.  We will assign names from this list to participating sponsors.  Sponsors may act alone or in teams.  If you cannot affor to sponsor a child by yourself, find a friend to help sponsor along with you.  The Sponsors are asked to do the following:

1. Purchase gifts (one toy and one article of clothing with a total value of no less that $30 and no more than $50) for the child.
2. The gifts are to be left UNWRAPPED and turned in to Omega Chi by 1:30pm on Wednesday, December 8 (no earlier than Monday, December 6).  Please take your gifts by the Religion Department or the Chaplain’s office on the 3rd floor of the Polytechnic United Methodist Church on the Wesleyan campus.
3. Please put the child’s full name and your name on the bag containing the gift.
4.  If you would like to sponsor a child but would rather not do the shopping, you may do so by sending a check for $30, $40, or $50 made payable to “Omega Chi of Texas Wesleyan” (for Christmas gifts for the needy) to Dr. Jesse Sowell, Dept of Religion, Texas Wesleyan.

If you have a preference, specify the age and/or sex of the child you prefer to sponsor.  We will do our best to accommodate your request!

You can pick up a form in Patrick’s office at the church (in the loft) or email Justin Mikulencak, Omega Chi Vice President for details – j_mikulencak@yahoo.com – or talk to Justin, Melissa, or Patrick next Tuesday at Awaken.
