The Christmas season is right around the corner and many of you have started your Christmas shopping already. Remember those less fortunate by helping make this Christmas one to remember for a child in need, in our community. The St. Vincent de Paul Gift Tag Program provides gifts to families associated with the Marrilac House. Parents come to the center the weekend before Christmas, and with a $5 donation per household, can choose one gift for each chid. Monetary donations collected from families are used for field trips for the children throughout the year. Please consider adding another gift to your list this year!
November 17 through December 9, gift tags will be available after Mass at both the Sheffield and Webster entrances. Return the gifts unwrapped to the altar steps or bring them to the Parish Center no later than Sunday, December 16. If you prefer to shop online, visit our charity registry at Target.com using the following link tgt.gifts/SVPGiftTagProgram. Gifts will be delivered directly to the Parish Center.
Volunteers are needed Sunday, December 16, 2018 following the 8:00 a.m. Mass, to help sort the gifts in the Parish Center. Please contact Kristin Lapinski at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
Thank you for your help and support in making a child’s Christmas brighter!
