About 185 students and adults gathered together to spread some Christmas cheer to the homeless population in Sacramento and Placerville late last month.

Every year the Rolling Hills Christian Church youth bring new blankets, sleeping bags and socks to the church to gift wrap and deliver to people who are in need. The junior high and high school students who participate realize that this may be the only gift some people receive during the holidays.

This year the youth not only delivered new items of warmth, conversation and smiles, they also served food at a “tent city” in Placerville. This event is a great way for students and adult leaders to pause and think about people who are in need during the holidays —to take a break from the holiday rush and spend some time letting others know they matter and someone cares about them.
