As the Christmas season approaches, Immaculate Conception Church is preparing for our annual giving tree. Our giving tree this year, however, will look a little different; due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we have decided that our usual giving tree where we hang up the gift tags will be put on pause this year as a safety precaution. We will be hosting a virtual giving tree through the website Sign Up.com in place of the tree.
The organizations that the gifts will be going to this year is Hope House in Jersey City, NJ, York Street Project in Jersey City, NJ, Sisters for Life in New York, NY, and Franciscan Community Development Center in Fairview, NJ. Each organization has requested items to help with their mission of helping families in need.
Each item that the organizations have requested can be found on the ICC Virtual Giving Tree Sign Up.com page. Please go to: https://signup.com/go/nWyhFdP to access the virtual giving tree. To help understand how to use the website, we have included a step-by-step guide on using the virtual tree. You may sign up for as many items as you would like to donate.
As we have done in the past years please Do Not Wrap the gift. All gifts should be dropped off before or on December 6th, 2020. The gifts may be dropped off during the week and on the weekends. We ask that the gifts get dropped off at church under our usual Gift Christmas Trees.
Although our giving tree might look a bit different this year, it does not change the hearts of howgiving our parish is. These organizations are genuinely grateful each year that the parishioners at Immaculate Conception Church help partake in serving the families they support.
If you have any questions regarding the Giving Tree, please contact Youth Minister Dana McStowe at firstname.lastname@example.org.Thank you and God Bless!
