I hope you had a great Thanksgiving with your family!
On Saturday, December 12th there are two important events being undertaken to help the needy in our community.
- Our Council is sponsoring a Food Drive to collect food for the pantry at Commonwealth Catholic Charities and to collect Christmas Dinner bags for families of Blackwell School. Information related to these needs is in the first flyer below. You may contribute food or gift cards for the CCC, or assemble a Christmas Dinner bag for a Blackwell family – or both!
- The Annual St. Bridget Christmas Sharing is underway and parishioners are invited to adopt an individual or a family and to donate gifts and food. Information about the needs of the individuals and families is located on the Christmas Sharing website. Please click on the flyer below or this link. Times for the drop-off of gifts is on the website, including on Saturday morning, Dec. 12th. Contact Dan Harms for more information at Dan Harms (email@example.com).
Please consider supporting both these worthwhile initiatives. The food banks are reporting very high demand and very much need food to be able to help as many as they can. And, the Christmas Sharing will help many individuals and families have a joyous Christmas.
As we are just two weeks from the collection date, so adopt a family or individual today for Christmas Sharing.
We are in need of more helpers on Saturday December 12th. Please let me know if you can volunteer during the 8:30 to 10:30 shift, or the 10:30 to 12:30 shift (includes drop-off at Catholic Charities. please communicate pass this on, too to others in your family, and friends that you believe would like to participate. I would very much appreciate if you can immediately forward this on!
Thank you so very much!
