“Christmas Angel Tree”  

In keeping with the spirit of Christmas and this Holiday Season, we are again requesting your support for the “Christmas Angel Tree Project” sponsored by Catholic Health Mount St. Mary’s Hospital. Each angel contains the sex and age of a child that is served by MSMH Neighborhood Health Center and community referrals that qualify for assistance. A Christmas tree with angels will be located at both church sites– St. Peter and St. Bernard.

Due to COVID restrictions, this year’s program will be quite different. The parents will not be able to come “shopping” for their children at the Niagara Falls Conference Center and the requests on the angels are quite limited. In addition to the requested clothing items, we are requesting gift cards from Children’s Place and Carter’s, so that this year the families themselves can go shopping for the items that are needed for their children.

Each angel specifies a requested gift and size or a gift card. After choosing the angel, we are asking that you return the gift (place under the Christmas tree at each church) in a box or gift bag, unwrapped, with the angel attached to the gift, no later than Sunday, December 6th. If an angel is taken off the tree at St. Bernard’s, it must be returned to the St. Bernard site. If an angel is taken off the tree at St. Peter’s, it must be returned to the St. Peter site. It is absolutely important that the angel be attached to the gift. There will be no need to sort the items at each church, but we will be in need of volunteers to help sort at an off-site the week of December 7th (dates and times to be determined). For many these last few months may have been a difficult time financially and choosing an angel may not be possible, but as always, warm hats, gloves, scarves and socks are always appreciated.
