SRLA Christmas Gift Giving Program
Dear SRLA Families and Faculty,
A wonderful tradition at St. Rose of Lima Academy has been our Christmas Gift Giving Program that we have run for many years! This year is more important than ever because there are so many additional families in need because of Covid. Through this program we make sure 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 if you can help these children, families and seniors during the Christmas holidays. There are two ways to participate in the program this year:
(1) Buy gifts for children.
~ If you would like to buy a gift, check off the appropriate box on the signup genius and indicate how many gifts you would like to buy. You will be provided with the name, age, and gender of a recipient in mid-November. Please wrap the gifts and bring them to school by Monday, December 7th. Gifts can be dropped off between November 30th through December 7th (Please budget $35 per gift). Drop off details will be provided.
(2) Make a monetary donation via the Christmas Giving webpage.
~Because of Covid, St. Joseph’s in Elizabeth is not collecting physical gifts this year for their families and Seniors. We will be collecting money in $25 increments to purchase gift cards for the families and seniors at St. Josephs. Please check off the appropriate box on the signup genius AND pay online via the donation webpage as soon as possible!The Social Outreach Committee will buy the gift cards on your behalf.Click “ HERE “ to make donations.
*Shoppers – As of right now we do not think we will need shoppers this year. We will alert the school community if this changes.
Thank you in advance for all of your support for this worthy project! We encourage all families to involve their children in the shopping and wrapping of these gifts. This program is a wonderful way to teach children the importance of helping others!
Please sign up at the below Signup Genius link by Monday, November 9th
