A long-standing tradition at SRLA, our wonderful Christmas Gift Giving Program ensures that there is at least one present under the tree for the children of St. Rose of Lima Church in Newark and the seniors and families of St. Joseph’s Social Service Center in Elizabeth. Please consider helping these children, families and seniors during the Christmas holidays. There are three ways to participate:
1.Buy gifts for children.
Check off the appropriate box on the SignUp Genius
and indicate how many gifts you would like to buy. We ask families to buy a warm piece of clothing and
a toy for each child. You will be provided with the name, age, and gender of a recipient in mid-November. Please budget $35-50 per gift. Bring wrapped gifts to school between November 27 and December 4. Drop-off details will be provided.
2.Send in a monetary donation.
3.Volunteer to be a "shopper."
Thank you in advance for your support for this worthy project! We encourage all families to involve their children in the shopping and wrapping of these gifts, a wonderful way to teach children the importance of helping others!
