Time for Caring and Sharing!

CCW Sharing Tree at St. Giles Church

For many years, the CCW has coordinated a Christmas tradition, the Sharing Tree. Through this ministry, we are given the opportunity to think about the needs of families, who are very much like us, however face significant financial needs. Our hope is to make this Christmas season a little brighter for them.

Again this year, we will provide gift cards for families to purchase gifts and/or food or other needs. For those who are able, we are asking for donations of gift cards to Jewel, Walmart or Target. You can also make a donation (checks payable to St. Giles CCW) in any amount which we will apply towards purchasing gift cards. Mail or drop off your donation at the Parish Center, 1025 Columbian Ave., Oak Park, IL 60302 or drop it in the Offertory collection at weekend Mass at St. Giles Church.

You can also make your monetary donation through GiveCentral (CLICK HERE) – So that we have sufficient time to purchase and allocate the gift cards to those needy families, please respond by Monday, December 12.

We are sure you agree that the Sharing Tree is one of the traditions that makes our Parish so special. Anything you can offer will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

If you have any questions, please contact Madeleine Butler at 708-267-7572 or Pat Micucci at 773-237-4691.
