Learn how our parish is reaching out to help those in need in our local community
SPECIAL NOTE FROM JC’s CLOSET: This August will mark eight years of ministry for JC’s Closet! Throughout those years, we have established a wonderful network of educators, directors and leaders within the community. We have also bonded with the people and families from all walks of life, listened to their stories and struggles, and shared tears and joys with them. Every person’s main concern is to break the cycle of homelessness or abuse for their children and establish a path of education to better themselves. Studies have shown that children who do not have appropriate clothing for school can be limited in their educational and social development. We thank everyone who has contributed to helping JC’s provide clothing and other items for those in need. We will begin collecting again mid-July for our August donation and are in need of the following items: Brand-new packaged underwear (boys and girls 5T-XL, youth sizes, adult sizes), bras (all sizes), socks (all sizes), long- and short-sleeved t-shirts (all sizes), brand-new or gently used (NO stains, odor, animal dander) shorts, pants, jeans, leggings, long- and short-sleeved tops, sweatshirts, sneakers (no cleats), casual shoes (boys, girls, young adult sizes). All items being donated can be dropped off in the library during weekly church office business hours.
JC’s CLOSET will be held this Friday, August 12th, 9:00-11:00 a.m. in the Gold Room. See the above note for what is needed.
