Despite COVID-19, ST. NICHOLAS DAY WILL SOON BE HERE! A pandemic can change a lot of things; the need of our neighbors is not one of them. Neither is the tradition of service and generosity held by our congregation so abundantly in the Christmas Season.
Just because we are not meeting in person does not mean we have to skip the joy of St. Nicholas Day! It does, however, mean that St. Nicholas is unable to travel. The way we share our blessings will have to pivot.
St. Nicholas Ministry will gladly accept cash donations to provide gift cards for 400 children.
Please make checks payable to St. Paul’s and write “St. Nicholas” in the memo line.
Mail them to St. Nicholas, ℅ St. Paul’s, 221 Union St. Cary, NC 27511. NOTE: If you mail checks to St. Paul’s, they must be received by December 4!
To donate with your credit card or PayPal, follow the directions on this page:
and be sure to write “St. Nicholas” in the “Write a Note” section (otherwise your donation may not go to St. Nick).
Friday, December 4, 2020 is the day! Any donations received after that day will be saved for use in 2021.
Gifts will serve the following ministries:
CommWell Health – A not for profit health system in central NC serving migrant families of the seasonal farm workers who remain throughout the winter each year.
The Healing Place – A rehab shelter for “homeless, addicted” men and women in Raleigh with a success rate of nearly 70%. Gifts are distributed to residents who can then provide a taste of Christmas for their children from whom they are separated. *Gift wrapping supplies are a welcome donation!
Families Together (PLM)—Families Together (PLM) is an ecumenical organization helping homeless families reach independence. It is one of the largest organizations of its kind in the state, housing an average of 90 parents and children every night in Wake County.
Please call, text, or email Colette Hibberd with any questions at (919) 803-9828 or email@example.com
We in return benefit from the joy that is felt by helping others. I look forward to sharing this event with you.
The Rev. George Adamik
