Giving Tree

With the great demand this year for Christmas assistance through WE CARE, Immaculate Conception Parish will be adopting several families. We have also adopted nursing home residents from Regency Care and Park Pointe. For the safety of our Giving Tree volunteers and our church staff, all items for the children and nursing home residents will be donated online through an Amazon Registry. Payment for donated items will be made with credit cards, and all items will be shipped to the church office. Please feel free to donate as many or as few items as you wish. Items range in price from $5 to $50. To access the ICC Giving Tree Registry 2021, use this link. … Read More

We Care’s got new things happening
