The Giving Tree
The Giving Tree would like to say “Thank You!!!” to all the parishioners who gave so generously to the Christmas projects. Blessings overflowed in the ministry with many volunteers who gave much of their time and energy making the projects so successful. Also, thanks to all those who bought gifts and gave financial contributions, all helped to bring blessings to many over the Christmas season.
*Children’s Christmas stockings were filled with love, gifts and treats for approx. 4,900 children within low income communities across the central and south Phoenix valley, Mesa and Gilbert. God bless your generosity.
*Friends of the Needy families received love, clothing, gifts and blessings in over 200 gifts.
*Residents in a local Mesa nursing facility were recipients of Christmas bags of blankets, socks and personal care items, which were provided by parishioners of St. Anne’s and shared during the resident’s holiday party with songs sung by a family and young adults from St. Anne’s.
So many lives were richly blessed because of your love and generosity. Your giving of time, gifts and financial donations make such a huge difference in the lives of the less fortunate. Each year the numbers of those we serve grows, and every year God provides. This shows that we are a community that is grateful for all the blessings God has given us, and are happy to humbly share it with others.
God bless you and your families throughout the 2018 year.
Much love and respect,
The Giving Tree
