Each November the parish receives referrals from parishioners, social service organizations and schools to assist families in need of food and gifts for Christmas. Parishioners can “sponsor” families and provide a Christmas Basket by purchasing food, toys, clothing, etc.
There are also toy collection bins in various locations around the church in which gifts for children of all ages and gifts of warmth (hats, gloves, mittens, socks) can be placed. The Christmas Baskets are typically distributed in early December. This year’s distribution date is December 8, 2017.
If you need assistance with Christmas, please fill out the Christmas Basket Request Letter and Application (PDF) . Application deadline is November 15.
