Giving Tree

Giving Tree


Please take an ornament tag which has a designated item on it for you to purchase. Your gifts benefit St. Martha’s Hall, a shelter for abused women and their children; St. Elizabeth’s Residential Care Center for senior citizens; and St. Louis Catholic Academy!

Please only WRAP the gifts going to the residents of St. Elizabeth’s Residential Care Center, with the blue tag taped to the package.

We ask that you DO NOT wrap items going to St. Louis Catholic Academy. Attach the green tag to the gift so that we know where to send it. The children choose a gift for their parents or siblings from the items you purchase and they wrap their selections themselves.

Please DO NOT wrap items going to St. Martha’s Hall. Attach the red tag to your purchase so that we know where to deliver it. The staff will sort everything and make sure that every family leaving St. Martha’s Hall has what they need to set up their own housekeeping.

We appreciate you holding on to your gifts until the weekend of December 10/11 and bringing them to church that weekend.

Please bring your presents and place them around the Giving Tree on Saturday, December 10th or Sunday, December 11th before or after any of the Masses. All gifts will be sorted and delivered after the 11:30 Mass on Sunday, December 11th.

This program relies solely on your generosity!

You’ll never find more appreciative people than those who expect so little!
