CASH DONATIONS WELCOMED!!! We are happy to receive donations specified for this project. With them, we can then go shop for any items which are still needed. Remember that All Donations to St. George's are Tax Deductible! Make a note if your donation is specifically for the Nativity Project!
WHAT IS NEEDED? Sometimes "Dollar Stores" or places like "Big Lots" will have appropriate things for sale very inexpensively. Also watch for store sales such as "Buy One/Get One Free." Donations of the following items are needed:
FOODS - Non-perishables in bulk quantities, such as pinto beans, rice, masa & such. Non-perishables in smaller quantities (for individuals or family usage). Canned or packaged food goods of any type. Durable Produce, which doesn't need refrigeration, such as potatoes, garlic or onions.
CANDY - A variety of single-serving wrapped American-style candies or gums. We will mix these candies up and put them into little packets or bags for the children.

DONATION BOXES: Please bring or ship donations to St. George's Church anytime between now and Christmas. Place donations in the designated boxes in the Parish Hall.

DELIVERY TO ORPHANAGE: Sometime during the week after the Feast of the Nativity, we sort the donations and take them to the Orphanage in Reynosa. Hopefully, this will be done before January 6th, the customary day of celebrating the "Tres Reyes" (3 Kings) in Mexico. Please let Father Antonio know if you would like to join us when we deliver our donations.
THANK YOU for your help, donations and prayers towards making this project a great success. Giving is a reflection of the love for Christ and the concern we share for those who are in need of the many things which we so often take for granted. Let me know if you have questions or if you would like to help out or make a donation.
