The Giving Tree
The Giving Tree is an annual event that helps both our pantry families and requests from Mt. Olive Township and Roxbury Social Services. The tree was set up in our lobby beginning November 26th and it was decorated with paper angel ornaments that identify the recipient, gift ideas & sizes. Parishioners took all the tags and purchased presents according to the tag information.
We are truly blessed as a parish. We have carried on this tradition for over 30 years and helped many have a happy holiday! This is what St.E’s is about! Our 2016 Giving Tree was adorned with 554 ornaments for 73 families. Thanks to the generosity of our parish family, every ornament was taken and gifts were distributed to all 73 families. We were able to help to give those in need a very Merry Christmas.
Thank you always for your generosity…it knows no bounds!
