THE FOOD DRIVE
Please fill a grocery bag recycled from home with food items. Many different items are needed to provide families with a special Christmas meal and a little extra for the days following. Your donation can be returned to one of the collection bins in either the church or school.
THE GIVING TREE Please choose an angel from the St. Charles Giving Tree (display weekend is November 21-22) to provide a gift such as toys or clothing. Bring your unwrapped gift to the church by December 7. We also can use cash donations towards the purchase of hats & gloves or towels and blankets. Gift sorting will take place on Sunday, December 13.
Cash donations are needed to purchase perishable foods, laundry products and special need items. You can write a check payable to St. Charles Holiday Giving Program and drop it in the collection basket at any Mass, drop it off at the Parish Office, or mail it to the Parish.
If you are interested in sorting, packing, or delivering the food & gift baskets, the sorting and packing for Christmas Baskets will take place December 16-17th 9:30 a.m. in Feist Hall. Basket deliveries will be made on December 19th, beginning at 8:30 a.m. in Feist Hall.
Take time now to consider what your special contribution will be.
