Gift Tree (Christmas)
IN GIVING, WE RECEIVE
St. Anthony's has collaborated with Ely Community Resource for many years in hosting a Christmas Gift Tree. Families with children at home are encouraged to sign up with ECR to have Christmas gifts provided for their families from fellow community members. Each November a tree is put up in our gathering space with tags for clothing, shoes, and toys with the children's age, sex, and clothing sizes. We ask that you take a tag, write down your code on the sign-up sheet, and return your purchased gift with the tag attached to the parish office before the deadline.
Don't like to shop? We can also accept financial donations to pass on to ECR to be used to buy gifts for any tags not taken or other needs that come up for families in our community.
