About Christmas Basket Week

December 10-15

See our Calendar Event above for more details

This Christmas Season
Many of our parishioners help feed, clothe and visit those in need. Our Christmas Basket program is now in its 49th year! It’s one of the best things we do.

Christmas Basket Week is a highlight of the Advent Season at St. Philip. We see the amazing generosity of the people of St. Philip. Come be a part of it all.

Last year, approximately $51,000 was raised and over 1200 toys donated, which allowed us to provide food, toys, and grocery gift cards to over 250 families.  Our total expenses for this year are estimated to be approximately $45,000, and any donations that remain are to be equally distributed to a number of local charities that the Men’s Club has supported in past years.

Every dollar, every toy, every moment in time, and every bit of love that has been provided by our parish family this year has, and will, make a tremendous impact on the lives of many in our community.  God bless you for all your kindness.

Thank you for your time and most of all Thank you for the Love you share with those who are in need.

Merry Christmas!
