Giving Tree & Gift Card Update
Thank you to everyone who gave gifts to the children from our Giving Tree. This year we collected approximately 238 gifts. The gifts were distributed to our families first then to Good Samaritan Ministries. We were able to collect $1,365 in Publix and $1,540 in Walmart gift cards for a grand total of $2,905.We distributed holiday gift cards to deserving Parish families and the SVDP Society. St. Mark Parishioners have always been generous and on behalf of the families that were helped this Christmas season, we thank you.
“Then the people rejoiced because they had given willingly, for with a whole heart they had offered freely to the Lord. David the king also rejoiced greatly.”-1 Chronicles 29:9
