What is Christmas Sharing?

Similar to an Angel Tree - Saint Bridget parishioners help over 850 individuals in need have a brighter Christmas with gifts, food, toiletries and other household items. After Mass visit the Confirmation Teens in the Murphy Conference Room or the Parish Center Meeting room to see the available cards. Select a card, purchase items on the card and drop off what you purchased to Saint Bridget by December 90th.

Christmas Sharing Buying Guide

Gift Recipeints to expect 2-4 gifts with a combined value of no more than $100. 

If a parishioner would like to spend more than $100/person, they are welcome to, but this guide helps gift recipients keep a realistic expectation of what to ask for.
Still, many times we see requests for electronics which may cost over $100, however, sometimes these can be purchased for well under $100. Here is a buying guide for a few common items: 

Tablets
There are tablets that can be found at Amazon and Walmart for as little as $35

Cell Phone
Unlocked, pay as-you-go phones are the best bet when buying for someone you don't know. 
Here is a phone at Walmart under $30, Here is a phone on Amazon for $35 and includes $40 in minutes. 

DVD Players
Here is a DVD Player for $35 on Amazon
Here is a portable DVD player on Amazon

We also have a partnership with Blackwell School in Richmond to provide students with necessities throughout the winter and beyond.
