Each Christmas, parishioners sign up to provide food, clothing and Christmas gifts to families and veterans through the Catholic Charities Women’s Shelter, Juan Diego Center and the Veterans Home.
In 2017, our parish was able to provide food, clothing and Christmas gifts to 35 families, including 91 children & 55 adults, through the Catholic Charities Women’s' Shelter and Juan Diego Center. We also provided gift packages for 65 veterans at the Eastern Nebraska Veterans' Home. $1,200 in cash and gift card donations were spent on household goods and gift cards for the children & adults at the Women’s Shelter, plus $1,100 was donated for Parish Families struggling due to major illness or other misfortune. We were able to give $500 in cash gift cards to Holy Name Church for their families in need! There were also parishioners that contributed items for the Women’s Shelter wish list.
Your generosity is humbling and appreciated!! Special thanks to our coordinators Kristi Niemann and Shannon Dombrowski for a smooth and highly successful project!
