Catholic Community Response Team (CCRT) Collection- Month of May
St. Vincent de Paul Bundle Days – May 16/17th
Blood Drive – Sunday May 31st
Hygiene product collection
The Catholic Community Response Team (CCRT) located in Pontiac, assists residents who are homeless or clearly living in serious poverty. CCRT has reached out to our parish requesting help with donations of FULL size (not the travel size) hygiene products. Our neighbors in need who receive a government issued Bridge card cannot use it for anything but food. CCRT provides them with hygiene products that they are unable to afford. The bridge card will not even let them buy diapers. The Christian Service Commission will be collecting items during the month of May. There will be a box clearly marked (CCRT) in the social hall for donations. Here is a list of items requested: toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo/conditioner, body wash, bar soap, deodorant, razors/shaving cream, feminine hygiene products, diapers/wipes, toilet paper, paper towels and laundry detergent.
Monthly food collection – Next weekend
Next weekend is our monthly food collection; here is a list of items needed: canned fruit, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cream of mushroom or chicken soup, Pancake mix, syrup, jelly, and cereal. We will be filling Easter food baskets soon, so please no expired, dented, or open products. Please place all donations in the baskets in the Narthex, Thank you!
