Each holiday season, Saint Margaret’s requests Christmas wish lists from programs that serve at-risk children in our community. Donors choose an ornament depicting a child’s first name, age, gender, and wished-for gift starting at $10. The donor attaches the ornament as the gift tag and returns it to their church or workplace. For more information, click here.
