Giving Tuesday

Happy Giving Tuesday, the kickoff to the holiday giving period and a great day to continue giving thanks! Help support us as we provide dinner, crafts, gifts and a special visit from Santa at Nazareth Housing’s annual Holiday Party. Your generous donation helps us provide food and craft supplies so everyone attending the party can have a delicious meal and every child can make a craft to take home.

A gift of $5 provides one meal. A gift of $25 provides supplies to make 100 candy cane reindeer. A gift of $100 provides arts & crafts supplies for all children attending the party, plus 15 dinners.

So, will you be a Stocking Stuffer, a Little Drummer Boy/Girl or Santa’s Helper this year?!
