Giving Tree Ministry

Our Giving Tree ministry is two-fold:  for our IHM parish families in need, we are requesting Meijer gift cards in any denomination.  IHM is also partnering with Catholic Charities West Michigan (CCWM) again this year, to supply toys & gifts for children in their foster care program.  In lieu of specific gift tags (as we’ve done in the past), we are asking this year for donations of any toy/gift of your choosing for a child (newborn-18 years).  Please include gift receipt for clothing items.  The gifts will be used to stock a shopping event for foster parents to attend, where they will choose specific items for their foster children.  If you are in need of any age-appropriate gift ideas, Please click here for CCWM Giving Tree Ideas or contact Marleigh Plachecki at (616) 558-6085 or plachecki825@gmail.com for assistance.  We ask that you bring in your unwrapped Giving Tree toys/gifts for CCWM foster children by  Sunday, December 6th, as CCWM will be picking up gifts the morning of Monday, December 7th!  Gifts can be dropped off by the Giving Tree table in the Narthex.  Meijer gift cards purchased for IHM families in need may still be purchased and dropped off in the Narthex in the offertory during the remainder of Advent.  Thank you! Thank you!
