First of all I want to thank you again for having on of our Catholic Charities donation boxes at your parish. The 45 boxes placed around the Diocese generate most often over $10,000 each month to help fund our programs for those most in need.
Second, - as winter wardrobes come out, fall wardrobes are stored, and new items of clothing from Christmas gifts replace older clothing in your closets or draweres, this could be an opportune time to gather up older items and drop them in the Catholic Charities donation box in the parking lot. Your support in helping us fill the needs of many in the Diocese is greatly appreciated.
