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 2019 we will sponsor 50 families from 2 shelters and 65 Veterans. Sign up the weekends will be November 9/10 and November 16/17 after all Masses. You may sponsor a family or individuals for toys, clothes and/or food. This is a wonderful way to get the whole family involved in the true meaning of Christmas. Many of these people would receive nothing for Christmas if not for all of you.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2018 Outreach Christmas Giving Program, we were able to provide food, clothing and Christmas gifts to 89 children and 48 adults through Catholic Charities Women’s' Shelter and Juan Diego Center. We also provided gift packages for 65 veterans at the Eastern Nebraska Veterans' Home. $1,150 in cash donations were spent on household goods and gift cards for the children and adults at the Women’s Shelter along with other wish list items contributed by various parishioners. Plus, the rental truck costs were covered by donations as well! What a wonderful Christmas for so many from your generosity! Special thanks to our Outreach Christmas Giving coordinator Lois Johnson and her support team for making it all happen
Your generosity is humbling and appreciated!!
