Even though you won’t be able to physically take a tag this year, the Giving Tree program is up and running! We just need to operate a little differently this year, and the “tag-taking” will be done over the phone.
To choose your “tag” for gift-giving (or if you have questions), please call Dianne at (314)645-8066. You can leave a message as to whether you would like to buy for an adult, a child, or a senior citizen.
You’ll receive a prompt return call with the information that would be on the tree tag: tag number, gender, age and gift idea. Please be sure to securely attach a gift tag or label with the assigned number you were given so that we can make sure it gets to the right person.
We hope to have the tree up in its usual place the weekend of December 12/13 so that you can bring your gift to Mass that weekend. For anyone not attending in-person Mass, you’ll need to drop off your gift at the rectory during normal business hours on Monday, December 14 or Tuesday December 15.
Thank you for being flexible during this very unusual Advent season! We are so happy to still be able to help those who need assistance during these challenging times, and are grateful for your understanding and generosity.
