We thank you for participating in the 2021 St. Gregory Adopt a Family Christmas Program. We will once again have 125 families to adopt but the program continues to be adjusted as a result of the pandemic. Parishioners can adopt a family from the list below and/or sign up to furnish a $100 Giant gift card for a family’s groceries.
Adopting a specific family: For each family, please purchase a Walmart or Target gift card to furnish the guardian a minimum of $50 per child. If you choose a family of 4 that would be a minimum of $200 gift card, family of 3 children it would be a minimum of $150 and for two children the total would be a minimum of $100. This will allow the families to buy what they need most for their children. Please enclose the gift card in a personalized Christmas card, addressed to the caretaker and family. Please include the family number (e.g. HF-120) on the envelope to ensure proper delivery. Please only choose one family to allow more parishioners to participate in this Christmas program.
Donating Grocery Cards: If you prefer, you can sign up to furnish a $100 for a family’s groceries at Giant. If your budget does not allow for these amounts, we will be happy to take any other donation at the office to combine with other donations to ensure each family has at least $100 for their Christmas groceries. On your envelope please write "Donating Grogery Cards." Scroll to the very bottom to sign up for Giant grocery card donations only.
Dropping off donations: There will be a designated box at the Welcome Desk where you can drop off your Christmas and gift cards beginning mid-November. Deadline to return to the parish office is Monday, December 13th.
