 Project GRACE HOLIDAY REQUESTS

St. Nicholas families have been asked to provide a basket of food for a family of four and/or fresh fruit. We will need to provide a gift certificate or cash to purchase a turkey, potatoes, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, carrots, stuffing mix, clementines, apples, onions and some cookies or pies. Please add anything that is special to you in the basket.  We can also collect additional bags of clementines for multiple baskets if we want. The oranges are always a big hit and so simple.  Please bring your items this Sunday.   Thank you!                  Jane
