STM Advent Giving Tree

 

NOW THROUGH DECEMBER 19





This Christmas, provide a special gift to someone in need! Our Advent Giving Tree is covered in tags marked with needed items for the STM Free Store, Women's Advocates, the STM Annual Toy GiveawayMidwest Special Services, and Listening House of St. Paul. In years past, your generous participation has given mothers the opportunity to give gifts to their children, provided thoughtfully considered wish list items to adults with disabilities, and given our homeless brothers and sisters clothing and other necessities that offer hope and dignity.

The tree is located in our church. Please stop by the Giving Tree before/after Mass or come to the Parish Center during business hours to select a tag. The tags are color coded for each of the recipient organizations. Our tags have varying deadlines.

  • The yellow tags indicate gifts for Women's Advocates. They are requesting Target gift cards to be given to their clients to buy Christmas gifts for their children. The deadline for these gift cards is December 5. The gift cards with their tags may be placed in the collection basket at any Mass on or before December 5. Please write the gift card amount on the card.

  • The red tags indicate gifts for the Annual Toy Giveaway. Due to the current rise in Covid-19 cases, we have decided to collect $25 Target gift cards again this year rather than hold an in-person Toy Giveaway event. The STM Women's Group will be sending the gift cards to parents to purchase Christmas gifts for their children. The deadline for these gift cards is December 12. The gift cards with their tags may be placed in the collection basket at any Mass on or before December 12.

  • The green tags indicate gifts for the STM Free Store. These tags list suggestions for items that the Free Store is in need of. These items are due by December 12. You may place the unwrapped items with the tag under the Christmas tree with the hanging tags.

  • The orange tags indicate gifts for clients at Midwest Special Services. These items are due by December 12. You may place the unwrapped items with the tag under the Christmas tree with the hanging tags.

  • The blue tags indicate gifts for Listening House of St. Paul. Warm clothing is needed, especially men’s pants, sizes 30 - 38 and men’s boots. The deadline for these items is December 19. You may place the unwrapped items with the tag under the Christmas tree with the hanging tags.


Let's spread the joy of Christmas! Thank you in advance for your generosity.
