Individual/Family Advent Activity
Each day of Advent, you or your family will add another item to the box of food for Elk Garden School Ministry. Use our scratch-off calendar to discover what item you will add each day.
Use our sign-up form to receive your scratch-off calendar, and select your location and date for dropping off your box
Church/Group Collecting for Elk Garden
Each day of Advent, members of your church/group can choose to collect items for the food pantry at Elk Garden. By taking a scratch-off advent calendar, they commit to filling one box (or more). On Christmas Eve, everyone can bring their items to the church to celebrate the gift of Christ's birth, and the gift of feeding our neighbors.
Use our sign-up form and indicate how many calendars/boxes your church would like to fill, and we will mail you an information packet and your calendars. On January 6th, you will deliver your boxes to the designated church or district office near you, which you will select on the sign up form as well.
Church/Group Purchasing Advent Pack
If you LOVE the idea but need or want to stock your own church's pantry instead, you can also participate by purchasing our Reverse Advent packet (all proceeds will be donated to Elk Garden to purchase food).
We have four levels of Advent Packs:
Bronze - $150 - Electronic Packet for Print + 30 Advent Calendars
Silver - $250- Electronic Packet for Print + 50 Advent Calendars
Gold - $375 - Electronic Packet for Print + 75 Advent Calendars
Platinum - $500 - Electronic Packet for Print + 100 Advent Calendars
Use our sign-up form and indicate how many calendars/boxes your church would like to purchase, and we will mail you an information packet and your calendars. The funds we raise from this effort will go to Elk Garden to purchase food for their pantry.
