Cold, very cold...

As noted in the previous post, we are collecting socks and warm clothing for those without these basics. This is expected to be the coldest winter in over 50 years. So not only socks are needed, but scarves, hats, gloves, blankets and towels. Why towels? The homeless are not able to use shower services open to them unless they have a towel. Like socks, they often get discarded as there is no way to clean or dry them once they have become wet and soiled. The bin will be emptied week by week of these items as they are distributed to those in need. Thank you for bringing these warm examples of love of God!

For anyone interested: Superstore has GREAT deals on new hand/body towels which should serve the purpose of those in need of them, and not break the bank of those who are tight on the wallet right now.
