Our Giving Tree ministry program provides assistance at Christmas to those most in need in our community, especially families with children. This has been an especially difficult year for all of us. COVID-19 brought our lives to a standstill and has changed our world in many ways. The number of Giving Tree recipients have increased.

This year, we must modify the way we handle donations for the Giving Tree due to the restrictions and guidelines for COVID-19. However, we need your assistance more than ever!  We realize that past donors may not be able to contribute as before – the parishioners of St. Matthew have always been so generous to the families of Billerica!

Due to current restrictions and guidelines, we can only accept monetary donations this year. There will be no tags. We are not able to accept non-monetary items!

Please make checks for the Giving Tree out to St. Matthew the Evangelist. PLEASE NOTE – please write GIVING TREE on the memo line to ensure we receive it. CLICK HERE to donate online – a special category has been set up each (former) Parish for the Giving Tree.

We pray that those who are able to contribute will be as generous as possible. All donations must be received by October 31 to allow time for our volunteers to distribute donations and parents to purchase items and wrap for their under-16 year old children.

Thank you to all St. Matthew the Evangelist parishioners for your continued generosity!
