2020 Virtual Giving Tree
YES, even in these days of Covid isolation our parish will once again participate in a GIVING TREE opportunity to bring Christmas cheer to residents of a facility operated by Episcopal Community Services (ECS).
Like most things in Covid, this year's Giving Tree will be different.
The "tree" will be VIRTUAL. In fact it will take shape on a Google Sheet, LINKED HERE. Open the form, select a recipient, and add your name under the list of donors on the same row as the recipient you have chosen.
The recipients are all residents of Hillsdale, permanent single-room occupancy supportive housing at Sixth and Market. This is one of 15 supportive housing programs in San Francisco operated by ECS.
Gifts this year are limited to two items: fleece jackets or towel sets. Each recipient on the virtual Giving Tree has indicated a gift preference. Please limit your gift giving generosity to $50 at the most.
You will return the WRAPPED gifts no later than Sunday December 6. Please be sure to attach a gift tag with the name of the recipient and their room number.
Returning the gifts Here are the options
- SUNDAYS: Nov. 22, Nov. 29, or Dec. 6 from 11:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m. to the Courtyard of St. Mary's. Someone will be there to receive your gift.
- SATURDAY, Dec. 5th between 11:00 am -1:00 pm, to the Courtyard of St. Mary’s. Someone will be there to receive your gift.
- ANY DAY before Dec. 6th on Nancy Clark's front porch: 1628 Lake Street --- there are safe out-of-sight spots on the porch. Please advise of delivery time: [email protected].
If you are on the Food Bank delivery team, you may drop off the gift at St. Mary's on any delivery day.
THANK YOU for your generosity, sharing the love of Christ with residents participating in programs of Episcopal Community Services during this holiday season.
