As is the custom of St. Norbert, we will be collecting gifts for the Giving Tree. Please take a Giving Tree tag at the entrances of St. Norbert Church; and when you return your gift (secure the tag on the package), place the gifts in the designated area at the entrance of the Church. Gifts will be brought to the Vineyard for safekeeping and sorting. We are requesting that you NOT WRAP the gifts to the children in order to make the distribution easier, but DO WRAP the gifts to the elderly. Please include a gift tag from the tree on all presents. The tags are color-coded which makes sorting and delivering easier. All gifts must be returned to the Church by December 12. St. Norbert Youth Ministry teens sort the presents and get the Children’s gifts to Catholic Charities and gifts for the elderly to The Grove Of Northbrook Living & Rehab Center to be distributed to the needy before their Christmas parties! There is a specific need at The Grove for 65 gifts for elderly men and 80 gifts for elderly women, so please consider taking a gift tag for the elderly so we do not run short. We cannot accept late gifts as delivery will be completed immediately after December 12th.
