2020 GIVING TREE INFO

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's St. Vincent de Paul Giving Tree will be done a little differently than years prior. Instead of having a Christmas tree set up at St. Bridget Church, we have created an online gift registry where people in the community can go and purchase a gift for an Abington child in need. Please read the instructions below on how to visit our gift registry to purchase a gift. If you would prefer to make a monetary donation or donate a gift card instead, please mail it to the following address:

      St. Vincent de Paul Giving Tree

      PO Box 2004

     Abington, MA 02351

Checks can be made payable to St. Vincent de Paul. PLEASE NOTE: only monetary donations and gift cards can be sent to our PO Box. All other gifts will need to be dropped off at one of locations and times listed in the Gift Drop Off Times section below. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us using the information listed at the bottom of this page. We appreciate your support during these difficult times and hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas!

 

REGISTRY INSTRUCTIONS

Step by Step Guide to Purchasing a Gift

 

STEP 1:

ACCESSING THE REGISTRY

Click on the link below to bring you to the 2020 gift registry:

http://www.myregistry.com/organization/svdp-abington-giving-tree-abington-ma/2588049

This will show you all of the gifts that have been requested for 2020.

STEP 2:

SELECTING A GIFT

As mentioned above, once you have accessed the registry, you will see a list of all gifts and gift cards that were requested for 2020. The images show an example of what the child is looking for based on the wish list that was provided. You will have the opportunity to purchase this exact item using a link that is provided or purchase something similar on your own. Once you scroll through the list and find a gift you would like to purchase, please make note of the gift code and description (Example: CODE AL - 4: Girl Age 14, Black Leggings, Size: Women's Small). You can then click the "BUY" button on the right hand side. PLEASE NOTE: if you decide you would like to purchase the gift in a store or on a different website than the one provided, please select that you have purchased the gift already to “claim” the gift and help prevent duplicate purchases. Until you have done so, the gift will show as "desired" instead of "purchased." If your gift is going to arrive after Sunday, December 13th or if you are unable to purchase the gift you intended to buy for whatever reason, please contact us at svdpgivingtreeabington@gmail.com prior to December 13th.

PURCHASING ON YOUR OWN INSTRUCTIONS:

If you would like to purchase the gift at a store other than the one suggested, simply select "I bought this gift already." Please follow the prompt to ensure the gift you selected is marked as purchased. PLEASE NOTE: if you would like to have your purchase made anonymously, simply select "Keep my details a surprise" and select a future date. Once you have reached the "Thank you for your purchase" screen, you are all set!

PURCHASING THROUGH THE REGISTRY INSTRUCTIONS:

Please select the "BUY THIS GIFT AT" suggested website. Please follow the prompt in order to be directed to the company's website (example: www.target.com) in a new window where you can purchase your selected gift. If applicable, please double check that the size and color match what is listed on the gift registry. Once you have purchased the gift, please return to the registry website and follow the prompt to ensure the gift you selected is marked as purchased. PLEASE NOTE: if you would like to have your purchase made anonymously, simply select "Keep my details a surprise" and select a future date. Once you have reached the "Thank you for your purchase" screen, you are all set!

STEP 3:

WRAPPING YOUR GIFT

Once you have your gift, you can choose to wrap the gift or not. In either case, please be sure to add a tag to the outside of the gift noting the gift code and what the gift is (Example: CODE AC - 3, Winter Coat, Girls Large). This is extremely important!

STEP 4:

DROPPING OFF YOUR GIFT

Once your gift has been marked with it's gift code and gift description, you are ready to drop it off! Please see the drop off dates and locations below. PLEASE NOTE: For your convenience, we have added an additional gift drop off time on Friday, December 11th from 2PM - 6PM at the back of St. Bridget Church in Abington. If an item you purchased will not arrive by Sunday, December 13th, please reach out to us via email at svdpgivingtreeabington@gmail.com to let us know the gift code. We will leave a box in the back of the church until Saturday, December 19th for these gifts.
