Many thanks to all who donated to the St. Vincent de Paul Underwear Drive. We collected over $1600 in less than a week. We were able to donate 54 items for women(Penney's ran out of inventory), 117 items for girls, 119 items for boys and 330 items for men. With the "leftover" money we bought 10 sets of twin bed sheets, 10 bath towels, and 20 washcloths. All items were delivered on Tuesday, July 14th, 2021. The St. Vincent workers were truly overwhelmed by your generosity. A Big Thank You to Mary Jean Walter for organizing and ordering all the items.
Well, our Christ Child ladies have been very busy helping others during this pandemic. On July 14th, Ruth Kibler and Kathy Farrey delivered 210 sack lunches to the St. Vincent de Paul clients. Thank You to all the volunteers who helped in this ministry. Kathy will let us know when the next dates are scheduled for making sack lunches in August and September.
