Make winter a little warmer- As we approach the Christmas season, we have a wonderful opportunity to live the Advent spirit. We can reach out to children in Prince George’s County schools who have recently arrived from Central America. Many of these children do not have warm clothing to wear in our colder climate.
You can help by contributing coats and outdoor jackets, new or gently used and clean, as well as hats, scarves, gloves and socks. Coats and jackets should be in sizes Adult Small and Adult Medium.
In addition, the school system can use Target gift cards to purchase other items students may need. Our gift card guru, Carol Thomas, will have extra $25.00 Target cards available for you to purchase. Purchasing the cards from St. George’s benefits the children and our parish. You may give the Target cards to Randy Haselton or Peggy Alexander, or place them in the collection basket in a clearly marked envelope “For Warm Clothing Drive.”
You can pick up a handy shopping list in the Narthex. Please bring your contributions to church and place them in the box in the Narthex. The last day for contributions for this drive is December 14.
