The Giving Tree 2019
During the time of awakening, waiting, anticipating, and preparing for our Lord, we as members of Holy Redeemer Parish have a way of sharing with the less fortunate, The Giving Tree. Our “Giving Tree” will be in the Narthex the 1st and 2nd Sundays of Advent (November30th -8th). As followers of Christ, your hallmark of love can be seen shining brightly because of your generosity and concern for the less fortunate.
Please take an angel, find the # of the angel and sign your name next to that # in the book. Please return wrapped gifts to the Narthex (or Parish Center Office) no later than December 13th. We have set a spending limit on the gifts. Please spend no more than $20 to $25 on each gift. Please attach the “Angel” to the bottom of the package before returning it.
