Just a reminder that the Outreach Committee has started a new, ongoing ingathering project. We are asking parishioners to contribute, whenever they can, individual-size toiletries (soap, shampoo, lotion, conditioner, toothpaste, etc.), for donation to the Rose Andom Center and to St. Clare’s. If you are at the pharmacy or the supermarket or the dollar store or some other vendor and think about picking up those items, you can then donate them by putting them in the round wicker basket (with a lid on it) that you will find in the corner of the Parish Hall, beneath the Outreach bulletin board and near the clothing donation bins for St. Francis and St. Clare’s. The Committee will then arrange for the delivery of those toiletries.
Thanks to everyone for your participation in the socks and skivvies ingathering that just concluded—as always, those donations will be very much appreciated and are very much needed.
Upcoming Outreach Committee events include our annual ingathering of diapers, baby needs and feminine hygiene products for The Crisis Center/House of Hope, on May 6 and May 13.
We will also be arranging again this year for the Congregation to participate in the Denver Brain Tumor Walk. This year’s walk is on Saturday, June 2nd, at Sloan’s Lake Park in Denver. More on that to follow next month.
Finally, just a note that the Bonfils Blood Drive, originally scheduled for May 20th, had to be rescheduled (due to a reorganization at Bonfils) to Sunday August 5th. More details to come on that event as well.
