Doing Spring Cleaning? On the first weekend of October, our parish is being asked by Catholic Charities to collect new and “gently- used” scarves, socks and winter hats to be distributed to the many needy and homeless in our area. If you are cleaning out your closets and storage areas this spring/summer, don’t forget to set these items aside for that collection.
SOME: So Others Might Eat is very grateful for the monetary donation received from OLV each month. These funds are used to purchase underwear and socks for the homeless population. They are also in great need of men’s clothing, shoes, belts, duffle bags and jackets. Donations can be dropped off at 71 O St NW seven days a week from 7:30am-3:00pm. Thank you for your support!
Poor Box: Donations for the month of April are for the poor in our community.
