Giving Tree

The annual Giving Tree program is coordinated by St. Simon’s St. Vincent DePaul Society and gives all parishioners the opportunity to provide Christmas gifts to families in need within our own community. The weekend after Thanksgiving, angel cards with family requests are placed on a tree in the Church foyer. Parishioners, without knowing the identity of the recipients, can select an angel and purchase the requested items. Wrapped gifts are returned to the church foyer two weeks before Christmas. Gifts are sorted and bagged by families for delivery. The Saturday before Christmas, parishioners deliver the gifts and boxes of food to the homes of the very grateful recipients. Recipients are interviewed and chosen based on their situation.


Join the hundreds of parish families that volunteer their time and resources to bring a few more blessings to others during the Christmas season. For more information contact Gerry Fant by email:
