ST. ANN’S ADVENT ANGEL GIVING TREE

ST. ANN’S ADVENT ANGEL GIVING TREE

St. Ann’s is full of amazing angels - the tags have flown off the tree and the gifts are pouring in!

You can become an angel by:

1 – Helping us to finish our ‘wish list’. There are still a few tags available both on the physical tree and online at tinyurl.com/OnlineAngelTags.  All gifts are due this coming weekend. 

If buying gift cards through the Haiti Scrip Ministry, please check their order & delivery deadlines, and include the angel tag with your order form.

2 - We still have openings for “Advent Angel” volunteers to sort gifts on Dec. 3rd after 11:00 Mass.  Scan this code or visit tinyurl.com/AngelTreeHelp to join the fun!

Through this wonderful parish tradition, St. Ann’s brings Christmas joy to area children, relief to their parents, and assistance to those in need in our community. This year, tags from our tree will provide gifts and needed clothing to 61 children in 23 families in Ashland and western Hanover County, and stock the shelves of ACES (Ashland Christian Emergency Services) with 100 items of clothing and household linens. You can also choose to make a financial donation to help ACES, Circles Ashland, Hanover Habitat for Humanity, Hanover Interfaith Clinic, or Hanover Safe Place meet our community’s need for emergency food & clothing, financial security, housing, health care, and freedom from abusive relationships.
