Society of St. Stephen assists residents in the Brazosport community who need help with rent or utility expenses. Each month, 25 to 30 families receive assistance through this endeavor supported by three Lake Jackson churches; Chapelwood Methodist, Christ Lutheran and First United Methodist.
The families might consistently meet their monthly expenses but not have additional money for unexpected situations. Society of St. Stephen provides once a year limited assistance of $150 to $200 for rent or utilities to help families through a difficult time. The need is critical in the area, and additional funds are required each year.
To supplement the church donations, Society of St. Stephen is hosting its annual Christmas wreath sale. Handcrafted in the Pacific Northwest, the 22-inch fresh-scented wreaths are made with noble fir, berried juniper and cedar and come with an attachable, red velvet bow. The wreaths make nice gifts for family, friends and clients.
Wreaths arrive the week after Thanksgiving and may be picked up at Chapelwood Methodist Church in Lake Jackson or delivered locally. Wreaths are $25, and wreaths shipped to other U.S. locations are $42. To order wreaths or for information, email email@example.com or call 979-798-0829 or 979-297-7953.
The deadline to order is Monday.
