For many years St. Michael parishioners provided gifts and grocery certificates for individuals and families in need. These families are the poorest of the poor. Many children and adults have special needs and are clients of social and religious agencies in the greater Youngstown area. And of course we include our Canfield families in need.
Our committee begins its work at summer's end as we contact local agencies for needy families. It culminates in December, shortly before Christmas, with our sorting of hundreds of gifts.
We always need volunteers. It's the best way to celebrate Christ's birth. Without the generosity of the members of this parish, many would not have warm clothes, bedding, or a Christmas dinner.
