We provide Christmas food baskets on the weekend before Christmas day. Your help to fill our Christmas baskets are always appreciated. The contents of each basket will vary according to the size of the family. The items we need for the baskets will be listed on the bulletin. If you prefer to make a cash donation, check should be made payable to Our Lady of the Rosary Church, clearly marked for Christmas baskets.
Here are a few items you should be aware of to make Rosary's Christmas "special:"
- The empty boxes will be arranged in the church and arranged in order of the number of people in each family. We will need a few people to assist with this set up at 6 PM.
- The canned and dry food items will be put into the proper boxes. We generally start around 9:30 AM. With enough help, we will finish before 11 AM. Feel free to invite friends, neighbors, co-workers who might enjoy being involved in a Christmas project.
- Several things will be happening at once: The church will be decorated for Christmas; people will be coming here to pick up food boxes; there will be a few deliveries of boxes being organized. We will need a lot of help-setting up the trees, moving boxes, registering people who come for food boxes, delivering two or three boxes, etc.
