Dear St. Mary's parishioners and friends,
For the past many years, St. Mary's has contributed generously to the Caring for Kids program in Cape May County through our Advent Giving Tree. Although we won't be able to get silly cutting out ornaments and playing with glitter glue, we can still help those in need in our area.
To keep things as safe as possible, rather than purchasing and wrapping gifts and dropping them off at the parish hall, you can make a financial donation. The staff at Caring for Kids will then purchase and wrap the items requested, and send them along with Santa Claus when he visits the families. They may also purchase gift cards that families can use for food and other staples.
St. Mary's will be helping ten families. They are:
