Join our us for our
St. Francis Annual Advent Giving Tree Gift Donation

Join the St. Francis Annual Advent celebration of sharing gifts through the Giving Tree during the weekends of Advent in December.

Take a gift tag off the tree and follow the gift description. Purchase a gift to meet the description, wrap it and securely fasten the tag to your gift package. Please box and wrap all gift certificates too. Return your gift to the Giving Tree as soon as you can, but no later than December 17.  If your gift is late please bring it to the Parish Office.

Become one of the many helpers who makes this amazing program possible. Sign-Up here to volunteer for our Giving Tree.

Thank you to Corrigan Moving of Ann Arbor for their generous donation of the SAM storage container where we house all the gifts until they are distributed.

For more information contact Scott Wright, Director of Parish Service + Justice Ministry Office, at swright [at] stfrancisa2 [dot] org or 734-821-2121.

Here's the Invitation to our select organizations.   Who is getting the gifts?

Giving Tree Lables Blank Word Document   These (1” x 2 5/8” size – Avery 5960) labels can be printed easily at St. Francis Parish Office.  This document is for your organization to populate with the specified number of gift items (if and when you were officially invited to participate in the program).  After you populate the label cells, one gift item per label, then please save you file and email a copy as an attachment back to us at St. Francis so that we can print them and get them stuck on the tree ornament.    (Or, you are welcome to print your own labels of similar size and then mail them back in the U.S. Mail.)
