Holiday Service Opportunities
Donations to the Food Closet Holiday effort:
This year the Food Closet is combining Thanksgiving and Christmas donation requests into a single donation request towards a collective Food Closet Holidays effort. The easiest (and preferred) donation method is through the website at h-t.org/fc-holidays. We also have envelopes available in the narthex that have a green “Food Closet Holiday Donation” label. Please include “Food Closet Holidays” in the memo line of your check donations.
Thanksgiving Food Donations:
Bring food anytime to donate or donate at Thanksgiving Day Mass. After Mass, the pantry will be open to take everything over.
Christmas Toy Drive:
The Beaverton School District, Family Justice Center, and the Oregon Department of Health & Services are each hosting a toy drive at their facilities, and our parish-wide toy collection will be divided between the three groups. Toy collection boxes will be in the narthex beginning the first weekend of Advent.
