I Believe In Angels 2020
Sharing the Spirit of Christmas with the Jubilee Park Neighborhood!
Gift Selection During November
Gift Drop-offs November 29 - December 1
“I Believe in Angels” is a partnership between Saint Michael and Jubilee Park. Saint Michael families share the spirit of Christmas with the families at the Jubilee Park and Community Center by either purchasing one Christmas gift per child (minimum value $35) or by making a donation of any amount toward the purchase of gift cards and/or gifts. Jubilee Park families register to participate. Last year, Saint Michael parishioners served 300 children and 110 senior citizens through generous donations.
Like most programs, I Believe in Angels is making some changes this year to ensure the health and safety of both the recipients of our gifts as well as the volunteers. Before the onset of Covid-19, the unemployment rate in the Jubilee Park community was approximately 16%. It has now risen to over 80%, so the current need is greater than it has ever been. Our goal this year is to make the season a little brighter for more than 330 children and over 200 seniors, and we are asking for your help to make that happen! Each family will receive a package of items via a drive-through pick-up which, in addition to Christmas presents for the children as we have done in the past, will also include gift cards so that parents can decide how they want to spend those additional funds to make the holidays special (groceries, more gifts, other necessities, etc.). For parishioners who choose to participate by selecting a gift for a child, this year you will be provided with details as to what gift that child would like to receive including the 1st and 2nd choice on their wish list. If you prefer, you can also decide to purchase another age-appropriate gift at or above the minimum dollar amount of $35, but this is a fun new way to make the experience more personal for all involved.
Please fill out the form below to indicate how you would like to be a part of our 2020 program. We ask that all gift donations are brought to Saint Michael by Tuesday, December 1, and they may be placed in the collection bins at the north and south entrances.
