PARISH MEMBERS PREPARE CHRISTMAS BASKETS FOR LOCAL FAMILIES

St. Thomas Aquinas’ annual Christmas Basket Food Collection is underway! Now through Friday, December 13, you are encouraged to bring non-perishable food and personal care items to the parish. On December 13 at 6:30 PM, we will pack the baskets, and on Saturday morning, December 14, between 9:00 and 11:00 AM we will deliver them.

We particularly need these items:

  • Canned fruits, vegetables, and juice
  • Soup, canned meals, spaghetti, ravioli
  • Cereal
  • Peanut butter
  • Pasta/rice
  • Macaroni & cheese
  • Laundry detergent
  • Toothpaste
  • Shampoo

This is a wonderful activities for families and individuals of all ages. As always, we need many volunteers to sort the donations, pack the baskets, and deliver the baskets. Starting November 30, sign-up sheets for volunteers will be in the Gathering Area.
