ADVENT GIVING TREE
THANK YOU and THERE’S STILL TIME!
The Holy Spirit is alive and well within the SMM community! The generosity with which SMM parishioners have given of their hearts, their time, and their money to our sisters and brothers is truly awesome. It is with your FAITH IN ACTION that we collected $15,400 for our seven organizations (each one providing unique needs to the greater community throughout the Flint and Detroit areas). In addition, almost another 100 bags of donated items such as towels, sheets, children’s books, socks, underwear, and even trash bags were included. It was truly a blessing to be able to provide these items as last year we were not able to because of the Covid outbreak.
BUT, if you missed it, there is still time to help! The following organizations have a direct website for you to donate:
LACASA Domestic Violence Shelter: https://lacasacenter.org/giving
PREGNANCY HELP CLINIC: https://friendsatphc.org/donate/donate-now
In addition, a BIG thank you goes out to all those background volunteers who: designed the tags, put up the tree, counted the gift cards, and delivered the items to the organizations: BARB KOWAL, JAN CARPENTER, MICHAEL HOLPER, SHIRLEY ROSS, DIANE DAVIDSON, MICKEY TUCKER, MARY SERIO, and DENNIS WAGENER.
May God Bless You,
CHARITY AND JUSTICE COMMITTEE
