Christmas and New Years are over and all the decorations at Church have been taken down. Things are almost back to normal. The kids we helped with the giving tree are still busy playing with the presents we gave them. Saint Anthony helped thirty-three children this year. According to Debbie Conway at the Church office, parish families continued to call the office and asked if there were more families that could be helped – that’s generosity. A few facts of note:
Planning for this year’s giving tree began the first week of November.
St. Anthony has been doing the giving tree for four years.
Each year the tree is a big success.
This is one of many ways you can share your time, talents and treasures
The children we helped are very glad that someone remembered them on Christmas. Maybe they'll remember this as one of their favorite Christmases. Thank you to everyone who helped with the giving tree.
