Advent Giving is Virtual This Year!

November 29, 2020 by Heather

Advent Giving is going virtual this year! While we won’t have “giving tree tags,” you can donate money or a gift card (bought through the SCRIP program) to one of the following organizations:

  • Christ Child Society,
  • ERAS (formerly Greater Tosa Interfaith),
  • Hope’s Closet,
  • St. Vincent de Paul Society and
  • the VA Hospital.

They will use your gift to bring Christmas joy to someone in need. There are three ways to give:

  • Donate through the St. Therese online giving site: https://sainttheresemilwaukee.weshareonline.org/ws/opportunities/AdventGiving2020
  • Complete a special Advent Giving SCRIP form – found in the November 28th/29th bulletin or by request of the Parish Office – and buy gift cards which will be delivered directly to the charity you choose. Orders and money must be in no later than the 9:00am mass on December 6th. Remember: If you buy a gift card through the SCRIP program, a percentage of the amount you pay is donated to St. Therese! So giving in that “little way” helps in 2 ways!
  • Put a check in an envelope marked “Advent Giving” in the Collection Basket at church or mail it to the Parish Office.

We ask that cash donations be received no later than December 13th.

Thank you for continuing this wonderful St. Therese tradition despite the pandemic!
