The peace and love of our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ be with you all.
To All Our St. Anthony Families,
We pray that in this time of hope and giving of the Advent season we can open our hearts to those children who are suffering with illness and injuries. We ask that with a happy and humble heart you consider contributing a Christmas gift to a hospitalized child. We also wanted to make you aware of the NEW CHOP POLICY for gift donations. CHOP will not be accepting any drop off gifts this time of year. In Lieu of this we are encouraged to send monetary donations towards purchasing gifts or purchase a gift via the attached link. The Weisman Children’s Rehabilitation Hospital in Marlton, NJ also encourages toy donations Wish List through their link. Although, Weisman will still be accepting physical drop off donations. These gifts should be NEW!!!! Attached you will find the links of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and The Weisman Children’s Rehabilitation Hospital Wish Lists. Please note the most neglected age groups are the infants and adolescents. There will be ONE box labeled with Weisman Children’s Hospital by the inside entrance of the church. The last day for physical donation drop offs will be Saturday, Dec 23rd.These small acts of kindness are so desperately needed in this world and serve as a great reminder of God’s infinite love and generosity. This serves as a wonderful opportunity to share Jesus’s love with our community. “So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Cor 9:7)
Be safe in the Lord.
