Unfortunately, our Giving Tree process will look and feel a little different this year due to COVID concerns. We will not be able to select desired gifts for individuals as we have done in the past. Instead we will be collecting gift cards which can be in any amount but not greater than $25. Suggestions for the cards are Target, Kohls, Amazon, CVS,Stop & Shop, Shop Rite, etc.
Please return the gift cards by December 6th so we can distribute them to the different organizations. Place cards in an envelope marked GIVING TREE and drop them off in the collection baskets in church, the Rectory mail slot or mail them to:
Sacred Heart Giving Tree
215-35 38th Avenue
Bayside, N. Y. 11361
Any questions, please contact the
Religious Education Office at 718-631-1307
