Holy Ghost Preparatory School
The Fathers’ Association Christmas Blessings Program
Once again the Fathers’ Association of Holy Ghost Preparatory School will be sponsoring the annual Christmas Blessings Program. This program reaches out to aid nearby parish families that are truly in need of assistance. For several years now, the overwhelming generosity of the HGP community has enriched the lives of hundreds of families during the Christmas season.
Imagine for a moment that you were unable to provide a simple gift for your children or a simple holiday meal to share with your family. How might you feel? For some local families, this is a reality. Last year, we embarked on a new mission with Christmas Blessings. A mission to restore parental dignity by affording parents the opportunity to shop for their family through the use of donated gift cards.
This year, we are continuing that mission. We are petitioning members of the HGP Community to graciously consider adopting a family in need and provide them with the opportunity to shop for their family with donated gift cards. We ask that gift cards be from designated local retail stores and that a gift card to a designated local food store also be provided such that the family may purchase the necessary ingredients for a holiday meal. Donating pharmacy or even gas cards would also be very helpful. In some cases families provided some wish items. Please consider them in your generosity.
Information regarding family selection and registration can be found here
For larger families of 5 or more we encourage two HGP donor families share in the effort together.
Our collection for all Christmas Blessing donations will be Sunday, December 10, 2017. Please join us in the Chapel for Mass starting at 9:00am. Gift cards and presents will then be collected from 10:00 am until noon in the dining hall. All donations must be delivered to HGP by noon so that we may then deliver the packages to the various parishes that afternoon. We thank you for your understanding.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Ron Marcinkowski via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 215-416-6826.
Thank you in advance for your compassion and generosity! It will make a difference in the lives of those in need.
