WARM HATS, GLOVES, AND SCARVES
Our Christmas Tree is up by the front door, and we are decorating it with new gloves, hats, scarves, and socks to help Catholic Urban Programs (CUP) prepare for winter. If you can donate one of these winter items, we will take them to CUP before Christmas for distribution. Our families donated over 750 canned goods to them for Thanksgiving, so we hope we can get your great support again with this Christmas Drive! Please turn in donations by Dec 20th!
