Thousands of Christmas Gifts Given to Children In Need

The Williamsburg House of Mercy Annual Angel Tree brought in more than 1,060 gifts for more than 540 children. The Angel Trees are set up at Saint Bede Catholic Church and parishioners donate the requested toy items.

The Williamsburg House of Mercy partners with over 15 faith groups and various businesses and nonprofit organizations to help minister to the poor and homeless in Williamsburg. They see men, women, and children who are in desperate need of the basic necessities, including food and shelter. Services and programs focus on a mission of providing financial assistance, food stability, homeless services, crisis pregnancy support, homeless rehousing and other outreach assistance to the greater Williamsburg community.
