St. Philip Benizi Catholic Church in Cedaredge is beginning the Advent season with a giving tree. This year the church will support the Abraham Connection Homeless Shelter. Donations of pre-packaged food, snack items and warm clothing (socks, hats, scarves and gloves) may be left at St. Philip Benizi on Tuesdays from noon to 5 p.m. The church will deliver the items to Delta.
"Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and, he will reward them for what they have done." Proverbs 19:17.
