Giving Tree - Virtual

Giving Tree - Virtual

November 13 - December 4, 2020
Online Event

The Giving Tree is going virtual this year! Due to the pandemic, our community partners are not giving out actual gifts this year. Instead, they will be giving gift cards to their clients.

So, instead of purchasing gifts this year, we are asking that you make a monetary donation to our Giving Tree so we can purchase the requested gift cards.

Giving Tree Donation

Our Partners

  • Badger Childhood Cancer Network
  • CareNet
  • Clothes Closet at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church
  • JFF (Joining Forces for Families) - Allied Drive & Russett Road
  • Meadowood Neighborhood Center

In a typical year, our giving tree is the traditional bare branch tree of the Advent Season often referred to as a Jesse Tree. The ornaments on a Jesse Tree recall salvation history leading up to Jesus Christ. The gifts we give are the bud and blossom of the stump of Jesse, springing forth from the salvation we have received in Christ Jesus.

We encourage all parish members to participate in this Christmas tradition. For more information, contact Terri Kysely at terri.kysely@stmariagoretti.org.

Support Our Parish

In gratitude for God’s generosity, we dedicate a sacrificial portion of our gifts of time, talent, and treasure to serve Christ and His Church by supporting the needs of our parish.
