The word Advent means "coming" and an Advent Calendar is a fun way to count down the days until we celebrate Jesus birth - His first coming. Usually the calendar has places where you receive a chocolate or another gift but this year maybe you’ll consider giving a gift each day instead … that’s the idea behind a Reverse Advent Calendar!
To make one is simple - you take a decent size box and maybe decorate it if you want and then beginning December 1st and for each day until Christmas - you put in a food item that can be used to bless the Exchange Food Bank in Bolton and help meet the needs in our community. Items like canned food, cereal, cookies etc can be put in the box and then you can bring the filled box to the Nashville Road building before or just after Christmas and we’ll deliver the blessing to the Exchange!
