Giving Tree

Help Make winter a little warmer for our brothers and sisters in need!

As the days grow colder and the holidays approach, the Franciscan Center is reaching out to our friends in the community to help us provide warm clothing, toiletries, and other essential items to the men, women, and children who come to our door seeking help.

Your faith community, school, office or family can make an important difference in our community in the days ahead by collecting warm coats, hats, scarves, gloves, socks and other critical items for the Franciscan Center.

Our Holiday Giving Tree Project supplies essential winter clothing such as hats, coats, scarves, mittens, thermal underwear and socks, as well as personal toiletry items to those in need. Items for children and babies such as diapers, baby food and formula, small jackets, mittens, and knitted hats are in especially short supply. We ask that you collect new, unwrapped items for the men, women, and children whom we serve at the Franciscan Center, which we will distribute throughout the holiday season and into the coldest months this winter.

DROP OFF INSTRUCTIONS: Location to be determined closer to the Date. Monday to Fridays 10am – 1pm. Donation Deadline is December 13, 2023 (ALL DONATIONS). Depending on your location we can help with your pick up. Please contact Siniya Harris at or Angela Hall at 410-467-5340 Ext 113 /
