The Giving Tree

 Each year our parish undertakes a project to help make Christmas special for those in need.  The project begins with obtaining lists of possible gifts from institutions and agencies and those in nursing facilities.  All of the gift suggestions are placed on cards that are hung on Giving Trees tags, which will be hung on the tree in the Church Narthex November 16 - December 1.  Parishioners are asked to return the cards attached to the gifts at Masses by December 8 (this is very important - please make sure you return by this date).  The gifts are sorted according to their destination and are either prepared for delivery or pick-up. 




How You Can Volunteer to Help
Volunteers will be needed to collect gifts at all Masses on December 7th and 8th.
The Giving Tree project is also always grateful for your old Christmas cards to use as tags on the trees.  Please be sure the cards are prepped with just the face of the card and a back that can be written on (ie: just remove the back half of the card and turn in the front). Cards can be turned in to the Parish Office.

Buying Gifts for the Giving Tree
Once you have selected a tag from the Giving Tree, please be sure to read the instructions on the back of the tag/ornament and make sure the tag/ornament is attached to the gift.  At the request of the institutions, gifts are not to be wrapped although gift bags are acceptable. All gifts must be returned to the parish by December 8th.

In 2018, our parish donated many gifts that brightened the lives of many individuals and families as well as the following institutions and agencies including: Butler County Children and Youth Services, Colonial Gardens, Elmcroft Nursing Home, Food Bank Lighthouse Foundation, Lifeline, Mars Home for the Youth, and Shelbourne Personal Care Home.
