Gift Giving Weekend
Gifts were collected at all masses on December 10th and 11th. On the evening of Dec. 11th, more than 150 youth and adult volunteers from SJV distributed several layers of the gifts into 70 pews. Representatives from 20 recipient parishes picked up the gifts to distribute to families in need.
Thanks to all of our volunteers, the process took less than an hour, and we estimate that more than 7,000 gifts were distributed to benefit less-fortunate children in parishes throughout our Archdiocese.
