2016 Fruit Basket Project

Posted by Fr. Bill on November 18, 2016

Before I entered the seminary I worked as a Produce Manager in a supermarket. I had worked in many grocery stores during my high school and college days. I always started out in the grocery department and I always seemed to end up working in the produce departments. When I was in high school my first job in produce was being assigned to make fruit baskets for Christmas. For over thirty years now I have continued making fruit baskets at Christmas time with the youth of the parishes. Last year, for the first time, I worked with the youth of Good Shepherd Catholic Community making fruit baskets for Christmas. We made over 200 baskets of which 90 baskets were donated! This year we will be making them again. Below you will find information about this year’s Fruit Basket Project.

I will be working with the Youth of GSCC making fruit baskets for Christmas. The youth will be selling three size baskets for: $10.00, $15.00, and $27.50. You may want to buy one for yourself or your family, or give one as a gift for that hard to buy for person. You may also wish to donate a basket. Donated baskets will be delivered to people in our parishes who are in hospitals, needy, or housebound. A donated basket would be a beautiful way to tell the sick, needy and housebound that the parish community cares for them. Orders will be taken for the Fruit Baskets in advance. Orders will be taken after the weekend Masses on Nov. 26/27 and Dec. 3 / 4 & 10/11, or you can fill out the order form and return it in the Sunday collection or drop it off at the parish office. Order Forms can be found in the church vestibules and also on-line at the parish website.   This project will be a fund raiser for our parish and will help support youth ministry.  The money raised will be used to help pay for the youth retreats and workshops that are available for our young people through the Diocesan Youth Ministry.  All orders will be available for pick-up after the Masses on December 19/20 at the church where you placed your order. Please consider supporting this worthwhile project, it benefits so many people of all ages. 

God bless you, Father Bill
