Christmas Hampers Update 

A big thank you to those who signed up to be a Christmas Hamper sponsor this Advent.  The Outreach Team joyfully reports that all families now have sponsors and will be able to celebrate Christmas with a nice dinner and gifts.  The spirit of Christmas is alive at Annunciation!   

For those of you who would like to help families facing hardship this Christmas season but weren’t able to sponsor a family, there are still ways to help.   

  1. Drop off non-perishable goods at the Winter Garden.  Not sure what to bring?  Click here.
  2. Make a cash donation to the Gloucester Food Cupboard.  Cash donations help buy milk, eggs, fruits and vegetable. Donate here.
