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 have been giving gift cards the past couple years and it has been 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 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 donate, click the button below or stop by the parish office to make your donation. Checks are payable to St. Blase Parish.

Also, please consider donating to one of the following organizations on our Advent “Giving” Calendar (see below / scroll down page for calendar).

Thank you so much for your generosity!

Introducing our Advent Giving Calendar! Each day of Advent we will highlight a different organization. Our online calendar below will be updated weekly each Saturday at 4 PM, except for the weekend of November 26/27 when it will be updated on Sunday. Please consider giving to one (or more) of these organizations to help spread the holiday cheer! Click on the logos for direct donation links.
