Giving Tree Project

The Parish is working with the Raleigh County Board of Education in sponsoring 100 local middle school students to help brighten their Christmas Season through our Giving Tree project.  This year we are again asking for only donations of money or gift cards.  The goal is to spend at least $125 per child.

Donations can be made through December 10.   Checks can be made out to the Church and marked “Giving Tree Project.”  Envelopes will be available at the Church to use for your cash donations.  Donations can be mailed to or dropped off at the Parish office, or placed in the collection basket at any Mass.  If you have questions, please contact Debbie Voloski @ 304-222-3340.
