Dresden Christmas Project Update
November 17th, 2011
We have had an outpouring of support for the project this year and will be helping 166 children. Even if you are wrapping on one of the wrapping dates, please send in your items on the collection dates of Wednesday, November 30 and Thursday, December 1 at St. Pius X Campus Ministry’s conference room. ALSO PLEASE REMEMBER TO LABEL YOUR ITEM WITH THE RECIPIENT CHILD'S NAME AS WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE GET THE ITEMS TO THE CORRECT CHILDREN. Gift tags should be attached to all items, to make copies of the tags, please click here.
Still interested in helping? We have several volunteer options below and can also use folks to make last minute purchases, donate fleece throws or make a monetary donation for grocery cards.
Parent Volunteer Opportunity: We will need several parent volunteers to help sort and stage the items on Thursday, December 1 and Friday, December 2. Times are flexible.
Parent and Student Volunteer Opportunities:
- We will have wrapping in two shifts: (9-11 a.m.) morning and (1-3 p.m.) afternoon on Saturday, December 3 and one after school (3:30-5:30) on Monday, December 5. These are all opportunities for the SPX students to complete the service hours in order to obtain their Works of Mercy. We also need parents to help with this effort; so please let us know if you are interested in helping.
- We will man a pick-up booth from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at SPX for families to pick up their items on Monday, December 5 and Tuesday, December 6 .We need several parents with large vehicles in case the families need a ride home (several walked to SPX last year). We also need students to carry items to the Dresden families vehicles. This is also another opportunity for students to obtain their WOM hours.
If you can help with any of the volunteer opportunities, please email Anne Lewis .
