Share the holiday cheer by helping SANTA Anthony Brown! 
Every year during Christmas, The Port Ministries distributes over 1000 gifts to the boys and girls of our community (No Sign-ups, gifts are given out randomly, and first come/first service). But before gifts go out. We need to get this wrapped, so we invite you to join our HOT COCOA AND GIFT WRAPPING PARTY on December 17th and 18th from 11am - 4pm. Come help us wrap gifts for children in the community and enjoy good company and hot cocoa
