Adopt a Family for Christmas Gifts

Adopt a Family for Christmas Gifts has been canceled this year, but you can still help provide families with a Christmas blessing!

COVID and social distancing demands make it impossible to interview each client face to face, write down their wish list, and ask parishioners to shop, wrap, and deliver the gifts to the gym as we have done for so many years. 

This year we are asking for $25 and $50 Wal-Mart gift cards. They will be distributed curbside along with their groceries and special holiday food on December 19th. The number of cards per family are determined by family size. We hope to collect enough cards to give $50 per individual in each household. 

We are going to miss seeing the smiles and tears when clients come to pick up their bags of gifts. I look forward to resuming the Adopt a Family gift-giving program again next year.

Monetary donations to the Social Service Ministry are always welcome to keep our shelves stocked in the pantry, and help us with energy and rental assistance for our clients when appropriate.
