Sign Up for Christmas Gift Giving!
 
There's still time to take part in this SRLA tradition—

Gifts donated by the SRLA community ensure 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. There are three ways to participate:
 
1. Buy gifts for children. 
Indicate how many gifts you would like to purchase, and you will be provided with the name, age, and gender of each recipient. Please budget $35 per gift.
2. Send in a monetary donation.
Your donations will be used by our "Volunteer Shoppers" to buy toys, coats, scarves, and mittens, to name a few of the requests we often receive from the children! Please make donations as soon as possible through SmartTuition.
3. Volunteer to be a "shopper." 
Our "volunteer shoppers" are provided with a very specific wish list to purchase 5 (or more) gifts with donated money, and will be reimbursed.
