During Advent and Christmas seasons share the joy of gifts.
Christmas Re-Gift Box
Did you receive nice new gifts, especially new clothes or new toys, which you won’t use? Donate them!
A Re-Gift box will be at St. Francis Church main entrance from December 22 to January 12 to collect all Re-Gift items. We will see that your gifts get good homes at a local organization. (Gift wrapping is not wanted.)
Since December 2010 this Re-Gift Box has annually collected 400 – 500 gift items. We are especially grateful for the clothing and housewares, new toys, games and dolls. Your gifts are redistributed to those in need by Foundations Preschool of Ann Arbor; the Project OutReach Team “PORT” for persons who are homeless with a mental illness; as well as, St. Louis Center in Chelsea, for children and adults with developmental disabilities. A special thanks to Mary Hayden who has served as our volunteer coordinator. For more information contact Scott Wright, Director of Parish Outreach Ministry Office, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-821-2121.
