Sponsor A Family For Thanksgiving 2009
The St. Joseph’s Sponsor A Family Committee is in its final week of preparations to help families from two neighboring parishes - Queen of the Most Holy Rosary in Roosevelt and Our Lady of Loretto in Hempstead. We have committed to sponsor over 200 families but, at this point, we are still below the 50% mark towards our goal. This year the need for assistance is greater than ever and we are counting on the continuing support and generosity from the Garden City community. Sponsorship involves providing a complete Thanksgiving dinner, including a frozen turkey with all of the trimmings to so many families in need. It is a unique opportunity to share your blessings with others. We encourage all residents, community organizations and corporate entities to participate in this wonderful charitable event.
Please join us in our mission to help others this Thanksgiving. Information and sign up forms will be in the St. Joseph’s bulletin this weekend (10/31- 11/1) or you may call Lita Reilly at 248-5880 or Pat DiMattia at 294-9316 who will take care of the form completion for you over the phone.
The deadline to sign up is Tuesday, November 3 and the collection of the grocery dinners will take place on Saturday morning, November 21 from 9:30 to 11:30 AM at the St. Joseph’s School parking lot. With so many families in such great need, your assistance this year is needed now more than ever. If you have any questions about participating or contributing to this program, please call Lita or Pat at the numbers above OR contact Sr. Ginny Maguire, Director of Human Services at St. Joseph’s Church at 747-7120. Thank you for your support.
