- TOYS FROM THE HEART. We are helping Shepherd’s Heart, the food pantry in our neighborhood, collect toys and gift cards so that they can provide Christmas to homeless children and high schoolers. We need unwrapped toys for boys and girls, grades K-6 and gift cards for 7-12 graders. Cash donations are also welcome. With an estimated 1,500 children who are officially homeless in Waco, the need is overwhelming. Donations of toys may be left in the marked box outside the Nave doors. Gift cards in $10 denominations and cash donations should be given to Shari Pauley, the Parish Administrator. THE DEADLINE FOR RECEIVING ALL GIFTS IS FRIDAY DEC 8.
