Paper angels from the Fredericton Food Bank are waiting to be chosen from small trees in the cathedral and in the hall foyer. Each of the 60 angels indicates a specific gift for a needy boy or girl in our city.
Unwrapped gifts, with the paper angels, firmly attached, should be brought to the church or the hall on Sunday, 02 December. Drop-off boxes will be set up near the angel trees in advance.
If you cannot bring your gift on time, please take it to the drop-off box in the hall no later than Monday, 03 December. It might seem early, but it's the Food Bank's deadline for our deliveries, allowing them time to distribute the gifts to the families they serve.
If you prefer to donate money, please write a cheque payable to Christ Church Cathedral and indicate Christmas Outreach on the memo line. Your cheque should reach the church office by Monday, 17 December. These funds will be divided equally among the Fredericton Homeless Shelters, Women in Transition House Inc. and the Fredericton Community Kitchen.
The Fredericton Food Bank has more than 700 children on its list this year. The Outreach Committee thanks you for your generous support in making Christmas special for 60 of them.
