Gift Cards: We are partnering with HeartShare St. Vincent’s Services to provide gift cards for young people who are cycling out of foster care and likely not receiving any gifts for Christmas this year, and foster children who do not have access to school supplies and learning tools required for remote schooling.
You can donate to this worthy parish effort and help to bring Christmas joy to our young friends by donating online at https://stcharlesbklyn.weshareonline.org/ws/opportunities/StVincentsGiftCards or dropping off a check at the rectory or in the collection box for St. Charles Borromeo with a note in the memo line that it is for the St. Vincent’s Gift Card Drive.
Please note that in light of the pandemic, we will need to get the gift cards to St. Vincent’s Services earlier this year, so if you would like to contribute, don’t delay! We would be very grateful for contributions of any amount. Donations will be pooled and divided evenly for the recipients to use on Christmas toys and/or school supplies.
Toys for Individual Children: If you would prefer to “Adopt-a-Child” and buy toys for a particular child, we will have the names of individual children and what they really wants. Please email [email protected] if you would like to participate.
