In order to safely support local families in need this Christmas, Campus Ministry has organized the following ways for you to help spread some holiday cheer.

  • Summit Life Adopt-a-Family – Families from Summit Life Outreach have written their Christmas lists, and an Amazon Wish List has been organized online for you to access and shop ( When checking out, please choose to ship to Barbara Bidak (Gift Registry Address). To ensure that when items are purchased, they are removed from the wish list and documented correctly, please ONLY purchase items from the Amazon Wish List link above.
  • Virtual Giving Tree – E-gift cards can be purchased online, in any denomination, to Carter’s ( or The Children’s Place ( Please insert as recipient for the gift card. The Giving Tree supports the Mt. St. Mary’s Neighborhood Health Center Christmas Shoppe, which provides essentials for local families.

We invite you, our NU community, to support one agency, or the other, or both!!! The deadline to purchase items for the agencies is November 13, 2020. Please feel free to contact Ashley Gruhalla in Campus Ministry with any questions or concerns.

It is through the incredible generosity of our Niagara family, that we are able to bring Christmas joy to so many, especially during these uncertain times. Thank you and God Bless!
