Sixteen underserved Briargate Elementary School families received an enjoyable holiday season thanks to members of four area churches – Mosaic Community Covenant Church, The Way Interdenominational Church, Embassy Covenant Church and Access Seventh-Day Adventist Church. On December 23, members of the four churches united to provide the families with a Christmas dinner, two wrapped gifts for their children, and a $50 Walmart gift card.

Following the dinner, the families took part in a candelight service and a presentation of gifts to children from Santa (aka Briargate Elementary School principal, Valerie Maclin). More than 100 families and church members were represented at the special event.

The Briargate families extend a heartfelt thank you to the congregations and Pastors Ed Lee (Mosaic Community Covenant Church), Carlos Jones II (The Way Interdenominational Church), Janice and Mallory Cranford (Embassy Covenant Church) and Kendall Turcios (Access Seventh-Day Adventist Church) for the generous donations.
