SAFFORD – With the COVID-19 pandemic canceling numerous holiday events – including the annual Live Nativity – the Victory Fellowship Church came up with an event that still spreads the message and cheer of Christmas while adhering to precautionary measures.
The drive-through Christmas Presentation and Toy Giveaway will take place Saturday, Dec. 12, from 5:30 – 8 p.m. in the northern parking lot of the Victory Fellowship Church at 555 Entertainment Ave. in Safford.
Every child who attends the event will be given a toy and a stocking full of goodies.
The event will feature a Nativity scene and various Christmas-themed presentations – all of which will be able to be heard on your car’s FM radio while driving through the event.
In the end, old St. Nick Santa Claus himself will present each child with a stocking full of goodies and a present with a little help from his elves.
On Thursday, a group of volunteers filled 450 stockings to be given away at the event. Volunteers came from all over Graham and Greenlee counties, including Mary Reynolds, of Duncan.
“I think it’s absolutely awesome,” Reynolds said. “I wish I would have seen more Duncan people here. It’s for a really good cause for our children.”
So, load up the family and feel the spirit of Christmas at this year’s Victory Fellowship Church drive-through Christmas Presentation and Toy Giveaway.
