Socks for Souls - Lenten Sock Drive
The Parish Health Ministry, in collaboration with Mercy Teams, is reaching out to you this Lent. We are asking not for alms, but for socks. Why socks? Socks are the #1 most requested and needed items in homeless shelters.
We would like to fulfill that need this Lent for the homeless in our community. Without socks the homeless are at a higher risk for disease and exposure to the cold.
Beginning Ash Wednesday until Easter Sunday we will have a Socks Box in three locations: one in the Church Narthex, one at the Parish Hall entrance, and one in the Parish Center School lobby. Please bring new socks only. White crew socks are preferred for men, women and children. This Lent, we invite you to consider offering socks for alms. Help us warm the souls of those in most need.
