As we prepare for Christmas, we remember that there are many neighbors less fortunate than we are, families that can’t afford to buy Christmas presents. Every year the U. S. Postal Service runs Operation Santa in response to letters to Santa from needy children.
For St. Ann’s December outreach focus, members and friends of the parish are invited to participate in Operation Santa. The Outreach Committee will pick up letters from the post office that identify the children’s Christmas wish lists. You may sign up to purchase a gift for a child, donate funds to help purchase gifts or ship packages, help wrap and pack the gifts for mailing, or deliver the packages to the Post Office.
Sunday, December 8: Sign up to buy gifts or donate for gift purchases.
Monday – Saturday, December 9-14: Buy your gifts!
Sunday, December 15: Bring in gifts and/or wrap and pack after the 11:15 am service, or donate for shipping costs.
Monday, December 16: Deliver packages to post office.
Thank you for your generosity and Christmas spirit!
