Socks and Undies Tree
Look for the “Socks and Undies” Tree outside the Parish Hall. Yep, that’s right. We want to decorate a Christmas Tree with donations of “Socks and Undies” of all sizes (especially children’s) as gifts to the organizations we support, such as: James Madison, Chrysalis (Bexar County Detention Ministry), and Good Samaritan Community Services.
Christmas Dinner Bags for Good Samaritan Community Services
Each year, Good Samaritan Community Services gives a bag filled with the supplies needed to make a Christmas feast to families in need. Join us, as we make this Christmas special for Good Sam families!
Please place the following items in a reusable grocery bag:
2 cans green beans
2 cans corn
1 can sweet potatoes
1 box stuffing
1 can chicken broth
1 box mashed potatoes
1 jar/package gravy
1 can cranberry sauce

1 item that will make a family’s Christmas special (candy canes, candy, Christmas books, etc... please keep item under $10, no toys please!)
You can drop the bags off in the Parish Hall between now and December 15th. You can also support this campaign by donating $20 to have one of Santa’s Helpers assemble a bag for one of our families!
