If you can’t shop, monetary donations are welcome. Make your check or EFT donation to Sacred Heart and specify “Thanksgiving Baskets” in the memo line. Kindly keep in mind that fundraising activities are above and beyond parish offertory. We are blessed to have many ministries, but it is important that we do not diminish support to parish operations in their favor.

Bring all donations to Sacred Heart no later than Sunday November 22nd


We need help sorting and packing the food. Masks will be required and social distance maintained.  Sign up by calling Sacred Heart Office.  (757) 625-6763
