Does it look like Christmas?! IHM is having its annual Christmas in July!
The trees are up and filled with tags to help our neighbors at Bethany House ( yellow), Catholic Charities Refugee Services (white), HELP Program (blue), Inter Parish Ministry (Orange), and Interfaith Hospitality Network (purple). This is the time of year when most social service agencies are usually at their lowest supply levels. Items are needed to maintain a household or to take care of clients and their children. Please consider helping in one of two ways.
Take a tag or two, purchase the items needed, and return them (unwrapped with tag attached) on giving weekend July 9 and 10.
Do a little online shopping from the comfort of your home. Gift registries for each agency have been established. If you shop through the registries, the gifts will be directly delivered to the agency.
In addition, a cash donation can be made, which will be used to purchase requested gift cards for the agency of your choice.
Please make your check payable to Immaculate Heart of Mary with Christmas in July (and a selected agency if you choose) in the memo line.
This year, because of the high cost of gasoline, there is a crucial need for gas gift cards, especially Speedway or Kroger cards that can be used for groceries or gasoline.

We thank you for your generosity.
