The senior ACYOA of St. Gregory the Enlightener in White Plains, NY, has participated in the Hand in Hand art supply drive since November 7. A box for donations that was placed in the narthex of the church filled up throughout the month of November. For the Christmas season, the ACYOA teamed up with the Women’s Guild to set up a Giving Tree, on which ornaments display the names of the specific items needed for the drive. Parishioners pick an ornament and agree to buy whatever is specified.
Hand in Hand has already collected many toys, hats, gloves and toiletries, among other items. They are excited about what they have gathered and they will continue to participate in this wonderful event.
