In efforts to provide assistance to the families affected by the devastating wildfires, we will be collecting various gift cards to places such as Wal-Mart, CVS, Target, etc. during both services on Sunday, September 11th and September 18th. Fortunately, the various organizations already providing support to the wildfire victims are swamped with volunteers and donations. These organizations have suggested offering gift cards to families to assist them in getting the goods they so desperately need. When the purple buckets come around during the next, two Sundays, simply place a gift card inside and it will be delivered to where it is greatly needed. As one evacuee stated, “this sinking, helpless feeling is only assuaged by the kindness of others.”
Well Crosspoint be buying gift cards if we just donation money?
I was contacted by a few churches up in Bastrop about goods. So Joe Joe Bear foundation is collecting goods and clothing if anyone wants to drop stuff off to us. We already donated 154 bears and about 500 pounds of clothing.

What a fantastic idea… Will do!
Where do Joe Joe Bear donations get dropped off?
Is CrossPoint giving the families the giftcards directly? If
I have tons of clothes that we could donate for the families that have no clothes after they lost everything in the fire. Will Jo-Jo Bear be collecting this at Westgreen church ?
Where can clothing donations be dropped off at?
For now, Westgreen is simply collecting gift cards (from such places as mentioned above). These gift cards will then be dropped off to various sister churches we have in the affected areas; the sister churches will be able to get the gift cards exactly where they need to be. Because families need assistance as soon as possible and donations are taking a long time to sort through, the gift cards allow families to get exactly what they need. It is absolutely wonderful to see all of the cards coming in! Thanks!
