The St. Nicholas Boutique: It’s a Wrap
December 21st, 2016
Today the doors closed on the St. Nicholas Boutique for the 2016 Christmas Season. Christmas 2016 was our most joyous year to date because we were able to help our clients and had enough donations to pay it forward and help the Department of Children and Families and the McGivney Center. This annual holiday tradition will continue next year and, as always, we need your help. If you would like to organize a drive to benefit the St. Nicholas Boutique for the 2017 Christmas Season, please contact Amy Zajac at email@example.com or 203-416-1336. To learn more about the St. Nicholas Boutique, read this Fairfield County Catholic article which truly captures the spirit.
