St. Paul Presbyterian Church – Christmas Boxes
For more than 20 years, St. Paul Presbyterian Church – in conjunction with other area churches and the San Angelo community – have provided boxes of food to community residents who need assistance during the holidays. The Christmas Boxes program grew out of an identified need of families who had to pay for food for their children – children who would normally be receiving free and reduced price meals at school – during the holiday break. The Christmas Boxes program is not intended to provide a “Christmas meal,” but rather to supplement a family’s grocery budget during the holidays. What began as a program to provide a few meals and toys has grown into a project that provides three weeks worth of meals for more than 300 families annually.
