Reverse Advent Calendar counts the days to Christmas, replenishes SVDP pantry

Do you use an Advent Calendar in anticipation of Christmas? This year, try our Reverse Advent Calendar! This is the opposite of a typical Advent calendar, where children get trinkets to count down the days until Christmas Day.  Instead, with this calendar, we are giving back daily to count down those days. The items listed each day will be placed in a box at home.

Who:  Anyone can participate.  These items will be donated to our parish’s St. Vincent de Paul Society for the food pantry.

Where: SVDP will collect the boxes at the Randel House garage on Jan. 7 from 2 to 4 p.m.

When:  Dec. 1 until Christmas Day!

How: Any box/container will do. Feel free to get the family involved and decorate the box, etc. Every day you will add to the box the items that are needed. Say a prayer for the people receiving the items as you add them each day.

If you have any questions please email or call Summer Kish at skish@sfxmedina.org or 330-764-8961.
