Christmas in July was a Success!
Christmas came early to 18 women and their families from the Gabriel Project of Arlington thanks to Our Lady of Good Counsel's (OLGC) Christmas in July event. The Pro-Life Committee of the Women of OLGC collected items for several weeks in June and distributed them on Sunday, July 1. Local moms selected items for their new or soon-to-be arrivals and siblings that included car seats, bath items, crocheted blankets and quilted playmats (handmade by parishioners), books, and toys. OLGC donated remaining items to A Women's Choice.
For more information, please contact Women of OLGC.
Generous parishioners donated:
- 100+ pieces of newborn to 4T clothes,
- 80 boxes of diapers,
- 32 packages of baby wipes,
- 20+ crocheted blankets and quilted playmats hand-made by parishioners,
- 4 umbrella strollers,
- 4 car seats, and
- much more!
