Advent Giving Tree – Drop Gift off by December 6th

The time has come for Holy Family’s Advent Giving Tree! Starting this weekend, parishioners can choose a tag off the Holy Family Advent Giving Tree and buy a gift for a child. Each tag represents one of 560 Fond du Lac County children who are in need this season. Are you homebound and unable to pick up a toy for the Advent Giving Tree? Contact the Holy Family Parish Office and have a staff member pick a tag for you. You then can order the toy online and have it sent directly to Holy Family, 271 Fourth Street Way. All gifts for the Advent Giving Tree must be brought to the Holy Family sites from which the tag is taken by Sunday, December 6.
