St. Joseph’s Sponsor A Family For Christmas
Sponsors are still needed for this year’s “Sponsor A Family for Christmas.” There are two options available with the Christmas program. The first option is to provide a complete holiday dinner with all of the trimmings for a family AND gifts for the children within that family. The second option is to provide just a complete holiday dinner for a family of six. This is a wonderful opportunity to share your blessings AND we welcome and encourage participation from all residents, community organizations and corporate entities.
Sponsorship forms are only available at the church entrances and in the bulletin OR you may sign-up over the phone by calling Lita Reilly at 248- 5880 or Pat DiMattia at 294- 9316. The deadline to sign-up is Monday, December 3rd and the delivery date is Saturday morning, December 15th at the St. Joseph’s School parking lot between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m.
If you would like to be a driver on delivery day, call Evelyn Fasano at 747-3235. You would be responsible for driving carloads of dinners & gifts to Queen of the Most Holy Rosary in Roosevelt OR dinners only to Our Lady of Lorreto in Hempstead. Volunteers for this aspect of the program are so important and critical to its ultimate success.
The response to this year’s Sponsor Program for Thanksgiving was tremendous and we thank all participants, particularly given the loss of power and destruction caused by Super Storm Sandy. Also, we recognize that the holidays are a very busy time but helping and giving to others is really the spirit of Christmas. Our immediate concern is obtaining enough sponsors for the families with children, ranging from 1 child and up to 6 children per family. We’ll answer your questions and complete the paperwork over the phone so please call Lita or Pat at the numbers listed above. Thank you in advance for your continued support of this program, now in its 15th year of generously giving to so many nearby families in need.
