New Shoes for Children Drive 12-31 ~ 1-8-21

Start date: December 22, 2020 - End date: January 8, 2021

New Shoes for Children Drive 12-31 ~ 1-8-21

The Respect Life Ministry is kicking off the New Year with a drive for new shoes and sneakers for school age children (child’s size 12 to adult sizes).
This is often an overlooked need within communities. Many children within our county do not have proper footwear. The drive will be for one week, Dec 31st-Jan 8th. The shoes and sneakers can be placed in the clothing drive basket in the foyer of church. If you have any questions please call Mary Beth Hess at
(609) 361-2471. We would also like to thank the parishioners for helping to make our ongoing new clothing drive for children a continued success.
This constant need is for infant’s sizes to children’s size 12. Donations can be placed in the basket in the foyer.

Earth Day Celebratory Request to Help Feed Our Children

As many activities are being re-shaped  by the Coronavirus, so too our plans for an Earth Day celebration.

This is such a difficult time for the vulnerable populations in our county .
