Norfolk Churches Encourage Giving

Norfolk churches are encouraging their parishioners to embrace the benevolence of the season. Immaculate Conception Church will inaugurate its Giving Tree Sunday, Nov. 28, and continue it until Sunday, Dec. 19. All are encouraged to choose a tag from the tree, place their names on the corresponding signup sheet and then shop to bring cheer to local children in need (gift cards acceptable). The wrapped gifts should be returned by Dec. 19.  The Catholic Women’s Club’s Mitten Donation Tree is located in the church library and new mittens, hats, scarves and socks to protect the needy are sought. Call Joyce Scala, 413-822-7954 for information. The Congregational church, on the other hand, is urging participation in Giving Tuesday Nov. 30 by going here to make a donation.
