Shoe Drive to Benefit Homeless Students in Gainesville City Schools
There is a sizable homeless student population in Gainesville City Schools. Our outreach committee met recently with the liaison to these students, Ms. Abbegale Malone, MSW and found out there is a pressing need for shoes. New or gently used athletic shoes may be brought to the parish office Monday through Thursday between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM or to worship on Sundays. Sizes needed are: men’s size 6; women’s sizes 9 and 9.5; boys and girls sizes 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. We will collect shoes until mid-December.
Donations for the Hispanic Alliance
Our Outreach partner, The Hispanic Alliance, is requesting donations of children’s winter coats and baby clothes (new or gently used), as well as infant formula. Your help in supporting our Latino community would be very much appreciated. Items may be dropped off at the parish office Monday through Thursday between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM or to worship on Sundays.
