Christmas at Br. Bennos

In years past, Girlfriends Care has done an Annual Blitz of events at Brother Benno’s on the Second Saturday in December followed by a Santa’s Closet event at the Thrift Shop the following week.  Due to Covid 19, these normal events will not occur; however, we will be requesting support from you for the Children’s’ Party which will occur on December 12th as a “Drive-Thru” event at Brother Benno’s. Approximately 300 children and teens will receive Christmas stockings, stuffed animals, pajamas, and some gift cards.  The parent will receive a $25.00 gift card for their family. 
We are not requesting volunteers to be onsite for the event and hope to resume next year with our normal events.  However, if you are planning a holiday family event or would like to get together with a few of your friends (socially distanced and masked, of course) perhaps you would consider inviting them to contribute and even perhaps make it a pajama wrapping party, that is, you wrap pajamas – but you can wear pajamas while you do it if you want!  Be sure to mark the pajama size on the outside of the package for proper distribution.

Girlfriends Care encourages your support in any way that we may help Brother Benno’s with this fabulous holiday outreach. 
Items can be delivered directly or mailed to Brother Benno’s Thrift Shop or to Helen Parsons, the project leader (addresses listed below). Helen can be reached at parsonsdavidt@outlook.com.
