The 2015 clothing drive
In many ways, the recent spate of cold weather has proved providential, because I am certain that while you were all spending your afternoons and evenings indoors, you passed the time by … cleaning out your closets!! Please do know that we are having a clothing drive here and that your help is once again needed. Gently used clothes (other than clothes which say Priory on them) of any type or size, newborns through adults XXL, will be gratefully accepted. Shoes, boots, and bedding (sheets, blankets, towels, etc) of all types are also needed. Underwear, if donated, needs to be new and in the original packaging.
The drive will begin on Friday, Dec. 2, and will last until noon on Monday, Dec. 19, and I assure you that what you donate will help to warm the hearts and bodies of the very neediest of all. Catholic Charities Community Services Southside is our recipient. This fine organization works with immigrant and refugee communities here in St. Louis, and their ministry is extremely important and far-reaching. Currently, in some cases, CCCSS is assisting second and third generation immigrant and refugee families from Bosnia, Nepal, Viet Nam, Mexico, Colombia, and several of the sub-Saharan African nations. And so, we need your help. Please send anything, anything at all.
