Annual Angel Project
Every January, OFNO volunteers travel to Nazareth Orphanage to celebrate the Epiphany. This is a daylong trip to Tecate, where volunteers bring Three Kings’ Day (Christmas) gifts to the orphans and Sisters. The trip this upcoming year (2019), is scheduled for Jan 12. You have the opportunity to sponsor one of the boys OR girls, sisters and dedicated workers at the orphanage.
Please open your heart and consider becoming a sponsor:
Upon assignment, you will be given the name, age and sizes of clothing for the recipient, as well as a number. Please provide any or all articles of NEW clothing (shirt, pants, shoes); these are the items most needed. You may include a NEW toy, but preferably NOT one that requires batteries, as the sisters do not have the means to replace the batteries when they run out.
Please WRAP and CLEARLY LABEL each gift with the child’s FIRST and LAST NAME and ASSIGNED NUMBER next to their name (50 or so presents is easier to keep track of on our end when each gift is labeled with the person’s name and assigned number).
There will be a large box in the back (narthex) of St Elizabeth Seton church and will be clearly labeled “Nazareth Orphanage, Fr. Kelly”. Please deliver your gifts any time between Saturday Dec. 15 but NO later than Sunday, Dec. 30. In addition, you can bring your gifts in during the week, when the Church is OPEN.
OFNO would like to send a big THANK YOU to all of you who participated last year, for your generosity in providing gifts for the boys and girls in Tecate. The children loved their gifts, and it is so wonderful that every year we are able to provide them with essentials, and some fun things too!
