The Giving Tree 2020

Posted on October 27, 2020 in: General News

We have had to make so many accommodations in our lives in the last several months. Our GIVING TREE program too, has undergone a necessary change in response to the coronavirus. This year, we are collecting GIFT CARDS ONLY for the families of Our Lady of Loretto parish in Hempstead.

Please help us spread the true meaning of Christmas by purchasing a gift card or two for these families who need our support. Gift cards for WALMART, OLD NAVY, TARGET, CVS and WALGREEN’S are requested. A suggested offering of $25 per card is appreciated. However, if you are able, cards in larger amounts would be gladly accepted.
THE GIFT CARDS WILL BE COLLECTED AT ALL OF THE MASSES ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5TH AND SUNDAY, DECEMBER 6TH.

Please place the gift cards in the collection boxes which will be found at the front of the Church near the 4th and 5th Street entrances. An additional collection box will be located in the Auditorium at the time of Mass on Sunday, December 6th.
Your donation may also be brought to the rectory or dropped through the mail slot on the convent door (Parish Social Ministry office – 120 Fifth Street).
ALL GIFTS MUST BY RECEIVED BY TUESDAY, DECEMBER 8TH.

If you have any questions, please contact Anna Sirianni at 747-7120 or asirianni@stjosephsgc.com.

In past years we received many thank you cards from the recipients. Their words of thanks were very touching: “You put a smile on my children’s faces and I thank you for that”…”Thank you very much for the gift cards you sent us; you gave us the opportunity to buy items which our children needed. I am very grateful and thank you for everything”…”Thank you so much for the gifts we received”…”I am thankful to God and you.”

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SUPPORTING THIS YEAR’S GIVING TREE PROGRAM.
