As we did for Thanksgiving, we will be offering our families a Meijer gift card to purchase food and gifts for their families this Christmas Season.
We began giving gift cards last year and it was very well received by the families we assisted. This process gives each family the freedom to buy what they want and need according to their individual preferences.
Whatever you would have spent if you took a tag off the Giving Tree in past years, please consider giving that amount (or more if you’d like) in a monetary donation.
Any donation is appreciated!
With the money that is collected, Christian Service will purchase the gift cards needed, and then distribute them to our families most in need in our local community.
To give, please click the button above or stop by the parish office to make your donation. Checks are payable to St. Blase Parish.
Also, please consider donating to the following organizations below. You can find their direct donation link listed next to the organization.
Thank you so much for your generosity!
