SRLA Christmas Gift Giving Program

Dear SRLA Families,

What an amazing response we have received in our Christmas Gift Giving Program! We have received 205 pledges for gift donations and cash donations this year! We are so thankful and proud of our school community for their generosity and their giving spirit! This exemplifies the spirit of Saint Rose of Lima Academy!!

 

A FEW REMINDERS:

·    If you still would like to donate to Christmas Giving, it is not too late! Click “ HERE “ to make donations. We have a few more gifts we need funding for, and any additional donations will be used to buy supermarket gift cards for the families in need. 

                  

·    If you signed up to support this project by purchasing a gift(s) for a child or as a Volunteer Shopper, all gift details were sent home yesterday or today. If you have not received them by Wednesday (11/17) please contact Betsy Guarnieri. Please bring the gifts into school between Nov 29th thru Dec 6th. All gifts must be in by Monday, Dec 6th. 

·    Please purchase/order your gifts as soon as possible! Shipping of items are experiencing severe delays. Please do not wait until the last minute if you are relying on shipping for your items!!

This year, many of the children we are donating gifts to are currently living in a shelter. The gifts given by our SRLA families may be the only gift they receive. We sincerely appreciate the support and generosity shown by everyone. 

We wish you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving!
