Outreach-Winter Coat Drive: Oct 28/29

The annual Winter Coat Drive will take place in our Gathering Space before and after all Masses the weekend of Oct. 28/29. Check your closets for new or gently used WINTER adult coats or baby/children's snow suits, teen-age warm jackets, and snowmobile suits (all sizes), only, to share with someone in need.

When shelter staff receive donation bags from St. Mary, they are thrilled at the condition of the contents and how they have been conscientiously sorted and sized through our volunteer efforts. Such care and organizing takes much time, and shows our respect for those we serve!

No other winter items will be collected this weekend. We have found from past experience with the tremendous generosity of parish and school members, that we simply can't properly handle one large collection of all kinds of winter items on one weekend. Therefore, while we kindly ask that this drive be limited to the items above, we will hold a Winter Essentials Drive the weekend of December 16/17, which will include a request for a wider variety of winter clothing items.
