St. George's Annual Nativity Collection for Orphanage in Reynosa, Mexico: 
It has been our tradition at St. George's Orthodox Church for many years, to take food and other items to the Casa Amparo girl's orphanage in Reynosa, Mexico during both the Nativity (Christmas) and Paschal (Easter) Seasons.  Parishioners and friends of the parish, as well as those in the local community, have generously contributed towards this effort. If you would like to contribute financially or by donating items we can take, please do so this week!  We will be going to the orphanage on December 28th or 29th during the upcoming Winter Youth Retreat.  Donations can be brought to Church, located at 704 W. Sam Houston in Pharr, between now and then. Call us at 956-781-2388 so we can meet you and receive your donations. Or you can donate online through our website at www.stgeorgepantry.org . Just click on the "Donate" button for the PayPal options, then send us an email letting us know for which project (orphanage, food pantry, etc.) you would like your contribution to be credited.
