This Charity & Justice Committee project col-lects and distributes gifts to the needy in Portage County via the Volunteers of America in Aurora, the Center of Hope in Ravenna, the “Hot Meals” program in Kent and Safer Futures in Kent.
This year, due to the pandemic, we are only requesting Walmart gift cards in the amounts of $10 and $20. No need to pick an Angel tag first. Gift cards will be accept-ed the weekends of November 1415 to November 2829.
The collection box is located by the Giving Tree in the Narthex. You may also drop them off in the parish office or mail them (AttentionK. Sloe Giving Tree). Please make checks payable to ‘Our Lady of Perpetual Help’ indicating “Giving Tree” in the memo section and on the envelope too. Then you bring your gift card or check to Our Lady, please take a 2020 Angel tag. Take it home to decorate your own Christmas tree, as a reminder of your kindness and stewardship. BE AN ANGEL – TAKE AN ANGEL !! All gifts are due back NO LATER THAN November 29. Thank you in advance for your support. Any questions, contact Kathleen Sloe at 330 388 7107
