BLANKET COLLECTION The annual blanket collection for the homeless, sponsored by the Belles of St Mary’s, will be held on two weekends, October 1 & 2, and October 8 & 9. The minister in charge of the Edgewood homeless shelter said they also need blue jeans (no greater than a size 42), socks and sweat shirts. Keep in mind there are mostly men at this shelter. This shelter is a ministry of the Methodist Church. They provide lunches and daytime shelter for the homeless and poor in the Edgewood area. This year the Belles are also collecting paper goods and trash bags for Anna’s House, a temporary home for women and children run by Catholic Charities. The Belles appreciate all the goods St Mary’s parishioners have contributed in the past. We hope you will be as generous this year. Bring your blankets, etc , and paper goods to the hall no later than October 10, 2016.
