The St. Paul’s Giving Tree

It’s that time of year again!  The Outreach Committee invites you to take part in a much-loved St. Paul’s tradition, the annual Giving Tree.

Our main partners for this year’s Giving Tree are Whosoever Gospel Mission and Face to Face.  You’ll see several tags on the tree (and online) this year:

  • Unwrapped toys will allow the men at the Mission the joy and dignity of choosing gifts for the children in their lives;
  • Gift bags, either of treats or small items, will be given to the 55 men to brighten their own holidays;
  • Gift cards will be used to help make holiday meals special;
  • Specific items that fill needs at either Whosoever Gospel Mission or Face to Face.

You can get involved either by signing up online to contribute or simply by taking an ornament from the tree at the back of the church.  The tree will be available from November 21 through December 5.  All items will need to be returned no later than December 12, so that toys and gifts make it to their destinations well before Christmas!  Please reach out to Kara (klmcshane@gmail.com) or Karen (kejmcshane@gmail.com) McShane with questions.

Even last year when we could not gather, St. Paul’s provided over $1500 in support through the Giving Tree.  Your generosity supports and sustains organizations serving the homeless and hungry in our community, and we are grateful for your support of their ministry — and ours!
