Food and Toy

Join us as we extend to others the Love of Christ, we provide food boxes and toys to 400+ families in need around Christmastime. We work with the Beaverton School District to identify families that could use some help during the Christmas Season. We will deliver the food boxes and presents on Saturday, December 14.


In the month of November we will once again be having the Assist-a-Family trees up in the lobby. The Assist-a-Family programs allows people from Sunset to share the love of Christ with a family in our community by providing the children in the family with a  small gift for Christmas ($25 value).  You then deliver the toy and a box of food we provide to the family.  This year we are hoping to Assist over 450 families, many in the who are living in unstable housing or are homeless.

Questions about your Assist-a-Family call the Food & Toy Hotline (503) 372-1590

Volunteer Needs


Do you have the gift of administration?  Our Assist-a-Family team needs assistance with ensuring all family information is collected correctly on Assist-a-Family tree Sundays (Nov 10, 17, 24).   We will be manning tables in the lobby in 30 minute shifts before and after the 10 am service.  Please contact Robert with which date(s)/shift(s) you can serve.

Toy Distribution

For those families that aren't personally assisted by a church member, the church assists them by providing a bag of wrapped presents for each family.  Do you like to run?  Can you remember where numbers are located?  We need 4 runners to help on Distribution Saturday (Dec 14th) from 10:45 am to 1:00 pm to locate these church assisted toy bags and hand them out to the appropriate family for distribution.  Please contact Robert if you are interested.

Packing and Delivery

Packing the food boxes takes about an hour. After all the boxes have been filled the delivery process begins. If you or your group have a family through the Assist-a-Family program, you will deliver the food boxes to them. Additional volunteers are needed to deliver to those families that were not assisted through the Assist-a-Family program but will have presents to share from the toy drive. Please sign up so we will know how many people are coming.

Packing Boxes: Arrive at 9:30 am and packing starts at 10:00 am SHARP!

Delivery: 11 am

Toy and Gift CArd Drive

We provide a simple gift for every child in the Food & Toy program. For the families that are not chosen as a part of the Assist-a-Family programs Sunset will provide a gift.  Please consider purchasing and donating a gift card (Fred Meyer or Target) or new toy of $20 - $25 value. Place toys, unwrapped, in the toy bins that are located at each entrance. Gift cards can be dropped off in the collection baskets on Sunday or dropped off in the church office.
