Fruit Basket Project

Father Bill's annual Fruit basket Sale description and order form.

Posted on November 10, 2015

'

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.

God’s blessing and peace, Father Bill

Fruit Basket Project

Good Shepherd Catholic Community Youth and members of the Confirmation Class will be working with Father Bill making fruit baskets for Christmas. The youth will be selling three size baskets for: $10.00, $12.50 and $25.00. You may want to buy one for yourself or your family, or one to give 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 sick, housebound, or needy. 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 after all the Masses on the weekends of Nov. 28/29 and Dec. 5/6. Or you can fill out the order form at the bottom of this page and return it in the Sunday collection basket the next few weeks or drop it off at the parish office.

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.

Their will be two pick-up dates for orders this year. You can order your baskets for the weekend of December 13/14 or the weekend of December 20/21. Ordered baskets can be picked up at church after all the Masses on those weekends. Please consider supporting this worthwhile project, it benefits so many people of all ages.
