May

We will be collecting clean, gently used clothing for our Spring Clothing Drive. Please bring your items into the Narthex and leave them in the bins provided at the Social Outreach table. All men’s, women’s and children’s garments will be accepted and distributed to St. Vincent de Paul Society. They have requested assistance and are most appreciative of our donations.

June

We will be collecting backpacks and school supplies. We will be distributing these items to those in our immediate school communities, who need assistance in getting ready for school in the fall. We are aiming to collect back packs and an assortment of school supplies ranging from pencils, markers, notebooks, crayons, lunch containers, water bottles etc. We will put the supplies in the bags and distribute them where they are most needed.
