  • THE SAINT ANTHONY GIVING TREE gifts should be returned wrapped with the ornament on the outside by Sunday, December 11, 2016.  If you did not get an ornament, you may purchase a child's toy, game, or book, and leave it "unwrapped" under the Giving Tree.  These will go directly to children served by St. John's Home.  You may also place cans of coffee, sugar, & dry creamer under the tree.  These gifts will be forwarded to our friends at Heartside Ministries.  Thanks to all of your generosity.  Thanks to all of the volunteers who make this a great experience!!
