Every December, new toys are distributed to needy children at Saint Nicholas of Tolentine Church. The toys are purchased through sponsorships from parishioners and visitors. The outreach is funded by a Christmas in July collection at the Masses of the first two weekends of July.
The Christmas ministry is not only a toy distribution, however. We create a memorable experience for the children by staging a Live Nativity, Christmas carols, refreshments, family photos with Santa, and special guests.
The 2018 date is Saturday, December 15 at St. Nicholas of Tolentine Church.
