In appreciation of our Lord’s birth and all of His gifts, we hope to again share His Love during this Advent and Christmas Season by supporting local families with our Angel Tree program. This year’s program has been simplified to meet county and state requirements. Instead of collecting gifts, we will be collecting store gift cards.
In previous years, our Angel Tree team has coordinated with counselors from each of the 8 schools, within our church boundaries to identify families in need of assistance. The children in these families were provided wish list forms that they filled out and returned to the counselors who then forwarded the wish lists to us. Our awesome Angel Tree team then put together all of the information, created wonderful gift cards and set up a beautiful distribution / collection table allowing you to select a wish list card(s)and return the gifts in the following two weeks to the same table. This year, we have no table but have been in touch with the area school counselors. We agreed that collecting gift cards from stores like Amazon, Walmart, and Target would be the safest and easiest way to help out some of the families in our area.
Please prayerfully consider sharing the Joy of Christmas by contributing to our 2020 SKD Angel Tree Gift Store Card collection. We are asking that each Gift card be valued at $25.00 or less. There are several ways to get your gifted cards to our Angel Tree team.
- Sunday Mass- please place the cards in an envelope labeled “2020 Angel Tree” and drop them in the collection basket.
- Mail or drop off cards to Saint Katharine Drexel Mission, 4100 Mill Creek Road, Haymarket, VA 20169 ATTN: Angel Tree.
We welcome any and all contributions now through Sunday, December 6th
If you have specific questions, please call 703-754-8444 and we will direct your call appropriately. We, at SKD miss you and pray that your hearts are filled with HIS JOY, LOVE and PEACE during this upcoming Advent and Christmas Season.
Thank you kindly and God Bless,
Saint Katharine Drexel Mission
