Project Light It Up

This year, we are launching a new initiative called Project Light It Up. Project Light It Up exists to provide Christmas gifts to children in the Fox Valley whose parents are experiencing an economic hardship. Christmas is the season of giving and we want every child’s Christmas to be merry!

Get Involved

  • Sign out an ornament from the display in the lobby between November 11 through December 2.

  • Purchase the gift described on the ornament; minimum purchase of $25 but no more than $35 per gift. Items listed on the ornament are not suggestions, but actual items requested by the child. Clothing items will have the requested items along with size and favorite color of the child. Please stay within the allotted price range.

  • Return the unwrapped gift and assigned ornament in the black bag provided by Sunday, December 2.

  • We ask that all gifts be unwrapped to ensure that families with multiple children have equal amounts of gifts per child

Gift Wrapping

Volunteers are needed to help wrap the Project Light It Up gifts on Tuesday, December 11 from 9AM-3PM. Special attention is given to each family as we wrap and prepare the presents for each child in the family. Presents are evenly distributed within each family so all children are treated equally and receive the gifts they have asked for. Sign up here to help wrap gifts on December 11.

Gift Pick Up

Volunteers are needed from 11AM-7PM on December 17 to assist in the giving of Christmas packages to those receiving Project Light It Up assistance during the Christmas season. Special invitations to Christmas services will be available to invite those who are not part of Pathways Church. Sign up here to help distribute gifts on December 17.
