You're invited to take part in an ongoing tradition that combines family fun and the heavenly scent of gingerbread with the opportunity to make a positive difference in your community.

Trinity Presbyterian Church of McKinney is sponsoring its eighth annual Gingerbread for Humanity event on Saturday, Dec. 14 to benefit North Collin County Habitat for Humanity. Registration is ongoing.

Trinity Presbyterian supplies fully assembled gingerbread houses ready to decorate, giant pastry bags of icing, a smorgasbord of candy trimmings, and lots of fun. The candy buffet — described as “awesome” by children who flock to the event each year — will delight any gingerbread house decorator. Before you take your gingerbread creation home, be sure to say hello to Mrs. Claus and take a free photo with her.

This popular holiday event always sells out, so pre-registration is highly recommended. To register, please go online to www.tpcmckinney.org and click on the Gingerbread icon to download the registration form. Paid registrations are due by Dec. 8 to secure reservations to the event.

Anyone unable to attend the Dec. 14 event may still participate by ordering Gingerbread for Humanity kits from Trinity. Kits contain fully assembled gingerbread houses and plenty of frosting and candy for decorating at a later time. They’re great for holiday parties and children’s activities. Look for the link on Trinity’s website to order your kit.

Gingerbread for Humanity Details:

  • Time: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14
  • Location: Trinity Presbyterian Church, 5871 W. Virginia Parkway, McKinney
  • Cost: $32 when you pre-register; $38 at the door (spaces limited)
  • Registration details: Go online to www.tpcmckinney.org and click on the Gingerbread icon to download the registration form.

It’s a great time for a greater good. All proceeds benefit homes to be constructed as part of North Collin County Habitat for Humanity’s mission “to put God’s love into action by building homes and communities.”

NCC Habitat is part of a global non-profit housing organization operated on Christian principles. The organization encourages positive relationships throughout the community by advocating for fair housing policies and by providing training to help families improve their shelter conditions.
