An opportunity in the Parish House Lobby to pick out a gift request from a local family in need. The Social Justice Coordinating Council organizes this annual event, which collects hundreds of toys, clothing, gifts cards and other items for local families. The SJCC works with several local human service agencies, such as Voices Against Violence, Family Promise MetroWest, SMOCC and others to determine what each family’s specific needs are. The UnDecorate the Tree Project provides a tree decorated with tags labelled with gift requests for three weeks. The following two weeks, all unwrapped gifts need to be brought to the Memorial Room with the identifying tag to be checked in my volunteers. This carefully coordinated project is planned early in the season so that families will be sure to receive their gifts by the holidays.
