Adopt a Family for Christmas- Still families left to help

Can you help another family have a Merry Christmas?  Many families left that will not have gifts or food this year with out your help.  Helping a needy family have a Merry Christmas is a wonderful way to experience the true meaning of Christmas. When you adopt a family for the holidays, you receive their names, ages, sizes and a need/wish list.

We ask that you purchase an article of clothing for each person, plus a toy for each child, and groceries (or a gift card) for Christmas dinner. Anything beyond that, such as additional toys and clothing, household items, etc. would be up to you. The items should be gift-wrapped and delivered to the family’s parish by December 21st. You may also deliver the gifts to the family’s home.  This year we received the names of many families who are struggling. This is an opportunity for you and family members, friends or coworkers to join together in helping a family for the holidays.

Please consider sharing with a family in need. Call or email Carolyn Plague at (586) 557-3745, or *protected email* for more information.
