Angel Tree Gifts due Dec. 8
Each year our classrooms sponsor 2 children for Christmas. These children come from families in need that have requested assistance from Sacred Heart Southern Mission. We ask families to participate based on the ability to participate. You can purchase as much or as little as you would like. We provide as much information about each angel as possible. Please send all gifts in by December 8. We need you to include the number of the angel with the gift you purchase. You do not need to wrap the gift. If you purchase clothing and there is an option to receive a free box, please include the box.
