Double the Joy
Gift Tag Tuesday
Catholic Charities families and clients enjoyed double the joy for this week’s Gift Tag Tuesday at two events given by our Head Start Super Store and Our Daily Bread programs!
Scroll down for more information and pictures from our holiday giving events.
The spirit of giving was in the air at the 30th annual Head Start Super Store event. Throughout the year, Head Start parents who volunteer or find other ways to participate get points in return. The points can be used like money to buy new toys and clothes at the annual Head Start Super Store.
Meanwhile, over at the Our Daily Bread Employment Center, the Volunteer Office hosted its annual Jingle Party for men, women, and children of the community who are not in a traditional shelter. This population of people are considered most at risk during the winter months. At the Jingle Party, they were served a fresh meal. The Volunteer Office also collects items for the winter such as clothes, gloves, hats, scarves, socks, and toys from generous donors from which the guests of the party can choose. This year, more than 400 families attended and benefitted from this year’s Jingle Party, which was held on Saturday, December 17th.
