Give Any Day OR Many Days This Month To Give Thanks, and Give Back
We can still give to our community during Covid-19,
we just just have to do it safely!
Fill the Service Banner
The idea is to fill the banner with all sorts of evidence of acts of kindness that each of you, our parishioners, has completed for others during this month.
What type of evidence? You decide.
Send a picture,
Send the thank-you note you may have received,
OR just send a simple email to saying what you decided to do to be of service..and we'll do the rest!
Can my family participate with a group?
Sure family projects are great, but remember to follow the covid-19 guidelines and social distancing!
Can I just donate something?
We love the generosity in this Parish, but let’s save that for the Sharing Tree
Where will the banner be?
The banner will be located in the Narthex
What if I'm not comfortable coming into the church to fill out my sticky note, but I still want to participate?
No problem, email Deb (email@example.com) with what was done (with or without a picture) and she’ll make a little sticky note.
What kind of service ideas or projects are you talking about here?
They can be Big or small, BUT, this year, we are not setting up the individual projects/tasks like we did in the past. Below is a list of places/agencies that we’ve gone to in the past as well as some new suggestions, but it’s up to the individual/family to make all arrangements.
**Because of Covid, each agency has different rules about volunteers, so we are leaving it up to the individuals/families to reach out to various agencies**
Visit/Call a shut-in or senior citizen
Rake leaves for a neighbor/veteran/ elderly
Help an elderly neighbor or shut-in with their Christmas decorations
Shovel a driveway
Help someone with some odd jobs around the house
Surprise someone with a treat: police, nurses, ambulance drivers, etc
Pay it forward at Starbucks
Organize a neighborhood food drive for one of the food pantries
Bring a meal to a stressed family
Volunteer to ring the kettle for the Salvation Army
Make hygiene bags and donate to any of the homeless shelters or Catholic Family Center
Provide a break for a caretaker (respite break)
Watch our video to see how your service can help others.
