GIVING TREE: We will again be hosting our annual Giving Tree online. We still want to support the needy in our community by helping provide them some Christmas joy, but we have some innovations in this effort.
We will have a physical tree in the ramp entrance with food money ornaments and links to the signup page for family gifts this year. We are again using SignUp.com for our Giving Tree ornament and volunteer organization. The link is: https://signup.com/go/ATwuCdW. We have 39 families this year that are in need of some Christmas cheer. You will sign up online to choose your “ornament.” If you do not have access to the internet, you can call the Parish Office and our staff will help you sign up and tell you what is needed.
For added safety and convenience, you can even shop online for your “ornament” and have the gifts shipped directly to the Parish Office! No need to get out to go the store or even to drop off the gifts. You will need to somehow note on the shipment what the gift is for, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with information about your shipment so that we can properly mark the gifts as they come in.
Volunteers will be needed to help wrap gifts that are shipped in and to help distribute gifts. This year, there will be contactless delivery of gifts and food to recipients’ vehicles. Please note your desire to help with this ministry on your Parish Stewardship Commitment Form!
