The organizations benefiting from this year’s Giving Tree are:
ST. PETER & PAUL WARMING CTR.
The Warming Ctr. provides drinks and food, use of a phone, and a place to have mail delivered. Showers and laundry service are available along with socks, underwear and other practical items. There are fifteen volunteers and six paid staff members. Once a week, medical and nursing students provide care and blood pressure checks.
ST. ISIDORE FAMILIES
These families live within our parish boundaries and struggle to make ends meet. Now that Christmas is around the corner, they desperately need some extra help. Last year, our Christmas Giving Tree helped families, adults and children with gift cards. Hopefully, we can do the same thing this year.
St. Isidore’s Baby Pantry has provided diapers, formula and baby food for 20 + families this year and we are growing. We service Macomb Twp. and surrounding townships.
Nativity Church, in Detroit, has been our sister church for many years. We have been helping them financially to sustain the parish and promote the Catholic Faith in and around them.
This is a non-profit organization created to serve people with brain injuries, intellectual and development disabilities and their families.
We also donate to the above, to a lesser amount, depending on our Christmas Giving Tree collection totals.
Founded in 1873, St. Aloysius has been serving parishioners of all walks of life, with a large number of homeless. We are helping them grow as the city grows around them.
