Angel Tree

Our Angel Tree program is now live and we need your help. More children are still being added to the list this week, if all slots are taken, please check back. Please help us fill the Angel tree gift slots that are still open!  This year, St. John's will be providing gifts for local families, Head Start pre-schoolers, Department of Social Services children in foster care, as well as Paul Stefan home.

Helping with this wonderful program is very easy:

Select an angel from our virtual tree. Gifts are divided into categories for easy viewing. Provide your name, email and phone number so we can easily contact you. Please pay attention to sizes, styles and colors...individuals are very specific with their gift requests for a reason...it is what they really, really want or need! If you can't find the item, let us know. Please use a gift bag or leave the gifts unwrapped. On the gift, please include the "gift code" (example: W3) AND YOUR name attached so we can mark the item as received.

We have quite a few angels that need to be selected / still open and presents need to be handed in by December 8th.

The first batch of presents need to be delivered to social services and the local school on the 10th. You can link to the Angel tree by clicking on the picture above, or from the code on the back of the tag on the tree, or by going to https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090449a8ab28a1fe3-angel2

Thank you for taking time to help a family who needs a hand with Christmas this year and for spreading the love of Christ. If you have any questions please email [email protected] or call the parish office.
