CHRISTMAS COOKIES FOR THE TROOPS
Father Luke is once again looking to send dozens of Christmas cards and cookies to our troops. You can help in the following ways:
- By providing homemade cookies, and lots of them! You do not need to bake from scratch; the refrigerator type of cookie dough is just fine. Please bring your cookies to the parish office on Thursday and Friday, December 5 and 6
- By donating money to cover the cost of shipping. You can bring in your donation to help offset the cost of shipping to the parish office or mail it to Assumption Church c/o Fr. Luke, 91 Maple Ave, Morristown NJ 07960.
By writing a note of thanks and encouragement; or drawing a picture, or sending a Christmas card. Let’s show our troops how much they are loved! Bring your cards or letters to the parish office or mail them to Assumption Church c/o Fr. Luke, 91 Maple Ave, Morristown NJ 07960, by December 1.
