Merry Christmas to everyone! It is a beautiful time of year for so many of us here at St. Matthew’s House. It is also a difficult time of the year for some of the people in our shelters and in our programs. For them, the holidays remind them just how alone they are. People come to us without hope, broken, and hurt. The St. Matthew’s House family of staff and volunteers sees this as an opportunity to show them love from a community and from God—a type of love they may not have known before.
At all of our thrift stores in Southwest Florida, we have giving trees where shoppers can make their Christmas purchases and give back directly to the mission of St. Matthew’s House. You might already be familiar with our unique promise—100% of your gift goes directly to our programs. If you would like to help, please choose one of the items below from our digital Christmas tree. Your contribution literally changes lives.
