Star of the Sea School’s Giving Tree charity gift drive has become a celebrated holiday tradition. This year’s theme is called “Holidays from the Heart”. Once again, as Christmas approaches, our Church and school community have the opportunity to provide special gifts to local community members in need.
In the past, these gifts were distributed to children only; however this year Catholic Charities distribution list includes all individuals served by local homeless shelters and community outreach programs. These individuals include recently placed veterans, elderly in financial need and young families in transition.
If you would like to participate, please select an ornament from the Giving tree. We kindly ask that all gifts remain UNWRAPPED and in order to ensure your gift is given to the intended recipient, please make sure that the ORNAMENT TAG IS ATTACHED TO THE GIFT.
Please bring your Giving Tree gift to the Elementary school office no later than FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4th..
Last year, Star of the Sea students, parishioners, faculty and staff donated over 200 gifts! Thank you for your generosity and support of this year’s Giving Tree. You will experience the joy of giving and your gift donation will brighten the Christmas of an individual or family in need.
