Gifts from the Heart Comes Early in 2020

Due to the pandemic, our annual Gifts from the Heart collection comes early this year November 7 – November 22. It will also look a little different. There will be two ways to offer your support:

  • Take an ornament from the Gifts from the Heart display wall. These ornaments contain gift requests from our neighbors in need. Then buy the gifts and return them unwrapped with the ornament attached on the outside to the alcove to the left of the fireplace in the Gathering Space by November 23. Gift cards may be returned to the main office document slot located next to the Gifts From the Heart gift tag pick up area.
  • Purchase a $30 gift card from one of the following stores: Wal-Mart, Target, Amazon or Burlington. If you intend to purchase a gift card, please visit tinyurl.com/svdpgiftsfromtheheart to let us know your intentions. Please bring purchased gift cards to the main office document slot in the Gathering Space by November 23, or send them by email to stasvdp@gmail.com.

There will be fewer gift ornaments this year as we are hearing of more interest in gift cards.

Gifts and gift cards will be sorted and sent out on November 23, so bringing them in by the due date is essential. All gifts will go to someone, but late gifts may not make it to the people who requested them. Thank you for your promptness and, especially, for your generosity!

Here is the document drop-off slot next to the parish reception window and the Gifts from the Heart Tag display.
