Winter Warmth Collection

A message from Director of Campus Ministry, Kathleen Daniewicz:

Our Winter Warmth Collection this year focuses on providing winter accessories for those who have little or none. We will be collecting only new hats, mittens and warm socks for people of all ages. 

All of the items we collect will be given to the Visitation Sisters in Minneapolis, to be distributed to those who have already begun knocking at the door of their new home in need of help. Twin Cities schools report that hundreds of children arrive at school every day with no socks or mittens, making recess a difficult time for kids once the snow flies. It would be wonderful if we could provide children with at least two pairs of good quality warm mittens (think of how often kids lose a mitten!) and several pairs of quality warm socks. Homeless adults are also arriving in need of warmth, so we will accept items for all ages. Please help to provide these wonderful gifts for our neighbors in need. 

There will be a marked collection box near the stairs in the Heart. Thank you in advance - please give generously!
