2023 GIVE-A-CHRISTMAS PROGRAM
The last couple of years we made changes to the Give-a-Christmas program and put the gift choices on-line only. This year we will again have gift choices on-line but will also have some of the gifts on ornaments on the tree in the gathering area. Participants can then choose whatever way is most convenient for them.
If you choose to sign up for gifts on-line, the website is Sign Up Genius. The link for this website will also be on the Saint Brendan website. Listed on the registry are the gifts being requested, the gender and age of the child and the size etc. The ornaments on the tree will be available the weekend of November 18/19.
Once you have purchased the item, you can wrap it and return it either to the Church Office or to the gathering area when you come to church. For gifts from the website, please put a tag on the item with all the information that identifies the gift and the recipient. For gifts from the tree, you can just attach the ornament from the tree to the gift.
Gifts purchased should be in the $20-25 range. All gifts should be returned by the weekend of December 9/10.
For the food collection we are again asking that parishioners make monetary donations instead of purchasing food. Checks should be made payable to Saint Brendan Parish with GAC on the memo line. Please place donations in an envelope marked Saint Brendan Give-a-Christmas program They can be placed in the collection basket or taken to the Church Office. The donations will be used to purchase grocery gift cards so that the families can purchase their own food items.
Thank you for your continued generous participation in this annual Saint Brendan Christmas program.
