Over 900 Gifts Distributed Through St. Leo’s Wish Tree Project

STAMFORD- After many weeks of collecting donations, packaging presents, and volunteering after Mass, the parishioners of St. Leo Parish delivered over 900 Christmas gifts, thousands of toiletries, and almost one hundred grocery cards to families in need.

75 volunteers and the entire St. Leo’s Staff supported the program, which supports Laurel House, Headstart/Childcare Learning Centers, Domestic Violence, Villa of Stamford, Roscco, New Covenant Center, and Birthright.

The efforts were part of the parish’s annual Wish Tree initiative, which has always been a tremendous success and a parish tradition in the month of December. Fr. Grosso, pastor of St. Leo Parish, was very encouraged by the event, sharing that the “Wish Tree” is growing- there were more gifts and toiletries donated this year, a true testament to the giving spirit of the community and of the hard work of those who volunteered.
