7. Christmas Giving Tree


Our parish Christmas Giving Tree is up and decorated! We started with over 500 tags on the tree this year. The color and shape of the gift tag identifies the agency.

The organizations and tags (color, shape) are:

  • Catholic Charities Community Services (red churches),
  • Family Services of Rochester (pink stockings),
  • Foster Grandparents Program (yellow snowman),
  • Monroe Community Hospital (white angels),
  • Coldwater Rd. Women/Children Residential Home (brown gingerbread man),
  • Hope Hall (green trees), and
  • St. Mary’s Adult Day Care Program (purple bells).

This list will also be posted next to the Giving Tree.

Each tag will have a list of 3 suggested items to purchase. Only one gift needs to be purchased. (However, you may take as many tags as you wish).

Please wrap the gift, securely attach the tag, and return the gift to the giving tree. (Please put any gift cards into a box before wrapping).

All gifts must be returned by Sunday, December 15th, as the agencies will be picking them up.

Thank you again for your continued generosity and support for our Christmas Giving. All of the agencies involved are extremely grateful for your help
