This Christmas season, we want to do what we've always talked about.  The thing that's always in the back of our minds when we fight through the crowd for the last gadget or gizmo for ourselves, or when we walk by that kettle ringer, knowing we could spare some change but we don't.  Or when we see that person on the street that looks like they could use some hope and we drive by and look the other way.  This Christmas will be different.  Because this Christmas, instead of taking as much as we can, we are going to Give this Christmas Away.

DAY 1 - Help Out Your Local Salvation Army
I just got an email from the Ponca City Salvation Army about their needs for feeding people for Christmas, here's what they sent:

Our Menu this year for our boxes is Turkey/ Ham, Mashed pot, Stuffing/ corn bread, Sweet pot., Corn, Green Beans, Cranberry Sauce, Pie Filling, Mac and Cheese, Cream of Mushroom Soup. 
We are trying to make enough boxes for 200, we appreciate any help anyone can give and God bless. I can be contacted Rebecca Ware @ The Salvation Army 580-762-7501 or by

If you can give to this, awesome!  If you don't live near Ponca City, be sure to contact your local Salvation Army and ask how you can help this Christmas season!  If you are able to give your time, they are always looking for bell ringers.  Find out more at !

If you help out and would like to share your story about how you are giving this Christmas away, email the house party at -
