Christmas Outreach 2020 Donation Info

Holy Innocents Christmas Outreach 2020

 How do we help at Holy Innocents Catholic Church during the Christmas season?

SO MANY WAYS!

This year looks a little different. But we can still celebrate the true meaning of the season by caring for our brothers and sisters through giving. For safety reasons, instead of having a Giving Garland, we’re  still collecting gift cards to distribute to our Food Pantry families and will once again help to provide gifts for the following organizations. Please make your contributions or donate your gift cards back to Holy Innocents by December 7th so we have time to organize, quarantine the items and deliver the items to those we are supporting this year. Thank you!
