Christmas Charity: Backpack of Joy
St. Mary Parish has committed to supporting 119 children this Christmas. Our project is Backpacks of Joy. We collaborate with Youth Connect in Boston to bring help to needy families.
Each backpack will be filled with winter hats, gloves, socks and scarves as well as age appropriate gifts. St. Mary's Parish prepares the gifts and delivers them to Youth Connect who in turn delivers the gifts to the families.
Every parishioner at St. Mary Parish has an opportunity to participate in this program by sponsoring a child to receive a full backpack for $25. If someone cannot support a full backpack donation then any donation is helpful.
Donations can be left at the church at anytime. Checks should be made payable to St. Mary Catholic Church of Cambridge.
