Share Christmas 2023 – Boxes Needed

Share Christmas will commence on the 1st Sunday of Advent this year. We will be requesting food items like we did before Covid. In the meantime, we are asking parishioners to collect boxes that will help us in transporting your food to the Sisters in the Downtown Eastside. If you happen to shop at AAA, Red Apple, Save-On, Safeway, or Superstore, please ask the staff if they can donate one empty box (size: apple box preferred). If you’re shopping at Costco, please ask the staff if you can take one empty tray (size: avocado, plum, kiwi, or tomato trays preferred). If you collect one box, as a parish community working together, we will have enough boxes. Please place your empty box on a table (Share Christmas Boxes) at the back of the church. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
