Christmas is right around the corner, and we are preparing our hearts and our homes for the birth of Christ. We must also look to our neighbors in need, and this year, our parish is continuing our longstanding tradition of the Giving Tree. Please prayerfully consider helping a Giving Tree family. We have received requests to help over 90 families this year through our St. Vincent de Paul organization. You can sign up to purchase gifts for one of the families. Our suggestion is that someone adopt the whole family – OR a few people can share in that. We will need one primary contact person to sign up for each family.
To sign up, you will be prompted to create a Flocknote account or log in to your existing Flocknote account. If you need help signing up for a family, you can also email Casey Oliver at email@example.com and Peggy Stradford at firstname.lastname@example.org. ALL gifts are due back by December 7th or before. Before is better. Once you sign up, clothing sizes and suggested gifts for the family you selected will be emailed to you.
You may also contribute by taking a tag from the Giving Tree inside the church. The tree will be set up after Thanksgiving. Take a tag, purchase a gift card from Walmart or Target in any denomination, write the amount on the gift card, and bring the gift card to the parish office. We can also accept monetary donations of any amount to assist with the gift purchases for the families. Checks can be written to St. Vincent de Paul, with "OLA 2022 Giving Tree donation" written on the memo line.
Thank you for your generosity!
