Instead of asking parishioners to shop for a specific child, we are seeking donations in order to purchase gift cards for our many families in need. We will be accepting donations beginning now through December 1. Parents will receive gift cards for their children by early December to allow them time to shop before Christmas. Please consider including these children in your family's Christmas budget. All donations can be mailed to the Ascension Church office or dropped in the collection basket. Make checks payable to "Ascension Social Concerns" noting "Angel Tree" in the memo line.
MAKING CHRISTMAS REAL FOR FAMILIES IN CRISIS AND CHILDREN IN FOSTER CARE
Every year, our Ascension parishioners rally together to bring Christmas gifts to those children who may not normally experience a joyous Christmas. Children's names and their Christmas wishes will be available for selection from the Giving Tree outside the main doors of the Church after every Mass on November 21/22 and December 5/6. All gifts will be collected after each Mass the weekend of December 12/13. If you would like to help, please contact parishioner Cyndi Hernandez at (321) 480-4119 or by e-mailing her at [email protected].
SOCIAL CONCERNS CHALLENGE
A very generous donor has gifted Social Concerns and our Food Pantry with a large gift. The only condition of this gift, is to challenge our community to raise $25,000 for Social Concerns by December 31, 2020. We are happy to report that, as of this posting, we have now received $20,000 in donations.
With the temporary closure of the THRIFT SHOP and the holidays fast approaching, we’d like to be able to assist as many families and individuals in need through this campaign challenge. If you are able to help us meet our goal, please mark your donation “Social Concerns Gift Challenge”. Thank you God bless you for your continued support of our Social Concerns outreach ministry.
