Christmas Giving Tree

As last year, St. Vincent De Paul is giving our parishioners the opportunity to make some children happy by donating to our Christmas Giving Tree.  However, instead of your taking stars from the tree with a child’s name on it, we are posting a list on our website of children with either their specific gift item request or allowing donors to decide what they would like to give to that child. We will place a star (bell?) on our tree for each child who is receiving a gift from one of you.

The list will also indicate those children who are all from one family.  Should you desire, you could adopt the whole family instead of choosing just one child.

Gifts should be new and not wrapped.  The donated items should be valued at no more (and not a lot less) than $30.

Please bring your unwrapped gifts to the church after each mass up until Dec. 6No items can be accepted after Dec. 6.

For those of you who would prefer to donate a gift card instead of purchasing something, there will be a number on the website to call.  Gift cards or cash (not preferred) must be donated by November 27.
