St. Vincent de Paul is once again sponsoring the Christmas Caring Tree gift giving program. Due to your generosity, last year we were able to help 122 Franklin families in need and provide over 500 gifts to these families.
Due to the pandemic, we need to make some major changes to the program. There will be no Caring Tree in the church. Instead of gifts as in prior years, we will be providing gift cards to those in need to purchase Christmas gifts.
Our request to St. Mary parishioners is to donate a $25 gift card to either Walmart or Target. If you would rather, a monetary donation of any amount would be appreciated. Checks should be made out to St. Mary’s SVDP. Checks, gift cards, or cash donations can be placed in an envelope inscribed with the address below or dropped in the collection basket at Mass. If dropping off a donation, please mark it “Caring Tree Program”.
Thank you all for your willingness to help those in our community who will benefit from our support during the holiday season!
Please mail or drop off all gift cards and monetary donations by Sun, Nov 29 to:
