Christmas Gift Drive for St. Vincent Mission in Appalachia
Each year, St. Alphonsus parishioners, CCD students and St. Alphonsus School provide gifts and food for the Christmas Store at our sister mission in David, Kentucky, which serves about 400 individuals annually.
Benedictine Sister Kathleen Weigand, originally from the North Hills, is the director of this mission. Over the years, St. Alphonsus has donated more than $50,000 worth of clothing, toys, household goods and funds in support of their Christmas store, food pantry and emergency assistance fund.
Volunteers are needed to prepare tags, posters and collection boxes. Others are needed to transport collected gifts to the rectory garage during the two-week collection period and to pack up the gifts in preparation for delivery.
