Christmas Donation Drive: Dec. 5 – 9

As we look toward the season of Advent, Bishop Chatard will be supporting the Catholic Charities Christmas Store & Holy Family Shelter with a donation drive. Each year, Catholic Charities provides a Christmas store for many families in need. In many cases, the gifts provided by the Christmas store will be the only Christmas items these families will receive. Last year, this store provided Christmas to over 930 families in Indianapolis, helping over 4,000 people in need. Please consider donating any of the following items as a way to help those less fortunate:

Items we are collecting are:

  • Jewelry, Jewelry Boxes
  • Watches
  • Bags
  • Hair Straighteners and Blow Dryers
  • Headphones
  • Wallets
  • Pedicure Sets/Nail Polish
  • $10-$20 gift cards for fast-food restaurants or Walmart, Target, or Visa gift cards (please include activation slip).

We are also collecting personal hygiene products:

  • tissues
  • men & women’s deodorant
  • shampoo & conditioner, ethnic hair care products, bar soap, body wash, lotion
  • shaving razors
  • toothpaste
  • hats, gloves, and mittens

Please bring your donations to the main gym before school between Dec. 5- Dec. 9, 2022. Collection will also take place before the Christmas Concert on December 6.

BCHS has also created an Amazon Wishlist if you prefer to send your donations directly to Bishop Chatard High School Christmas Donation Drive. Use the link below to take advantage of that opportunity.
