Our parish has several opportunities to give gifts to children this upcoming Christmas season:
Toy Drive: In what has been a strong ten-year tradition, we are partnering with the Custom House, to support the Catholic Charities toy drive. The toys and baby items collected will be brought together in a “toy store” for parents to choose which toys they think best for their children. Please place your toys in the rear of the Church.
Gift Cards: For the fourth year, we are working with HeartShare St. Vincent’s Services to provide gift cards for young people leaving foster care. This is especially important for those who have children themselves. You can give online or drop off a check in the collection box or with the rectory.
Gifts for Younger Children: HeartShare St. Vincent’s Services also provides gifts to young children of foster families. Due to the supply chain issues this year, they will provide donations to families to celebrate the holidays the way they feel is most appropriate. More details on how to contribute online to this effort will be available soon.
