The Giving Tree is decorated with ornaments and is located in the back of Church. Ornaments can also be found online at the below links:
The ornaments have several gift ideas for you to choose from. Ornaments must be taped to the outside of the wrapped gift and are due after 10:30 mass on December 12th, or sooner. If you sign up online, make sure attach a paper with the code on it. i.e. 4F (THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT and it is the process that we use to get the gifts to the right family).
Please bring all wrapped gifts to the back of the Church by the tree or Parish Office.
If you are purchasing a gift card for a family in need, consider using the Scrip Program.
Families will come to St. Matthew Church to pick up their gifts and are invited to stay for a warm meal.
If you would like to donate to the meal, please sign up at the above link and bring your items to the kitchen, in Kearn Hall, on Sunday, December 12th by noon or earlier.
Please contact Kate Tyler at firstname.lastname@example.org or 363-5238 if you have any questions.
Thank you for helping those in need this Christmas season and helping St. Matthew have a successful giving tree this year.
“Give something, however small, to the one in need. For it is not small to one who has nothing. Neither is it small to God, if we have given what we could.”
– St. Gregory Nazianzen –
