Giving Tree Donations

This Christmas is different again! We have tags on the trees for people who come to Mass and the Google Group sign up for those participating online.  This year, in addition to families served by The Lantern, we are including families from St. Anthony of Padua parish. We will be playing Santa to 81 families and 150 children - an opportunity to reach more families and spread the joy of Christmas! 

To become a giver, take a tag from the tree or email  A Circle of Light member will send you a child’s first name and family number. You may certainly ask to be Santa to more than one child.  We will be giving a virtual holiday basket to each family to add to their festivities so you can choose to provide a gift card for groceries as well.

All gifts this year will be gift cards.  We suggest a card value of $25.  If you’d like to contribute a lesser amount, we will consolidate those cash donations into gifts for the children and gift baskets. Lantern staff recommends Target or VISA/Mastercard gift cards and Safeway gift cards for holiday baskets; look for cards that the families can use easily without computer access.  If you plan to send online cards, be sure to include activation codes

Please bring your card(s) to Mass, mail your cards to St Teresa or drop them in the mail slot at the Rector.y THEY MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN Dec 13th.
