As with so many things in 2020 our Giving Tree this year will look different from previous years.
Since 1994 Pax Christi has joined with St. Peter Catholic Church in Monticello to provide Christmas presents for children in the Monticello/Wayne County area. In the past 26 years we have collected new clothes and toys for children who would otherwise have no Christmas gifts. Names are collected by a volunteer from St. Peter church who coordinates with the schools in Monticello and Wayne County. In past years we would then have volunteers here at Pax Christi sort presents, travel to Wayne County and have a party for these children.
As with everything this year, we must develop a new way to provide for these children!
During the month of November Pax Christi will again partner with St. Peter Parish by providing an opportunity for you to give financial assistance for St. Peter Parish to purchase gifts that our parishioners would normally purchase. You are invited to donate to this special Giving Tree Fund throughout the month with all donations to be received in the Parish office by noon on Monday, November 30th as we will be passing these funds on to St. Peter Parish on December 1st.
