February Parish Outreach - H.E.L.P. Project
Food pantries report that daily basic household supplies that we all use, such as toilet paper, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, and baby diapers are seldom donated and that they are receiving an increasing number of requests for these kinds of supplies. Food stamps cannot be used to buy these items making it harder for families to replace them.
St. Mary’s Church is doing a drive to help our community by collecting the following items:
Personal care items: 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, bar soap or body wash, razors, shaving cream, deodorant, lotion, hand soap, feminine hygiene products
Paper & miscellaneous items: toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, tissues, napkins, storage bags
Cleaning products: laundry soap, fabric softener, dish soap, sponges, multipurpose cleaners, bathroom cleaners, window cleaner
Baby items: diapers in multiple sizes, baby wipes, diaper rash cream, baby shampoo, baby lotion
For the month of February, please consider donating an item or two, and help our community! Donation items can be placed in the designated area in the South Hallway of the Church (heading towards the Parish Center).
