Christmas Giving Tree

Saint Thomas Giving Tree

Christmas is the season for giving. Volunteers of the Giving Tree begin preparing for this tradition of Saint Thomas in early November. They collect and record donation requests received from the community like outside agencies, nursing homes, and the St. Vincent de Paul Society. Then the real work starts and the group makes ornamental tags for the Giving Tree that is located in the main entrance of the church. Once parishioners return the gifts the volunteers then sort and distribute the gifts to nursing homes, hospitals and families. Come join in on the fun, and personally experience the joy of giving to others in need.
