STOCKINGS FOR SENIORS
As part of our parish’s ongoing effort to reach out to our neighbors in need, we will work with the Clarion Area Agency on Aging to help those elderly who may feel more isolated during the upcoming Christmas season. There are approximately 300 mostly older individuals in Clarion County receiving Home Delivered Meals (Meals on Wheels) weekly. These seniors are mostly isolated due to health issues and a lack of family to help take care of them. Their weekly contact with the food delivery folks may be their only contact for the week. We are asking parishioners to help us put together care packages this Advent Season.
"Stockings for Seniors" is now underway!
Please consider donating the following new items.
|Crossword puzzle / coloring books||Pens / pencils / crayons|
|Travel shampoo / conditioner / toiletries||Gloves, mittens, scarfs, hats|
|Socks with non-skid bottoms||Crackers|
|Individually wrapped candies / chocolate||Dog / cat treats|
|Fruit / gelatin cups|
Please return all items to the church or school by December 11, 2023.
Volunteers will be needed to help assemble gift packages on December 11, 2023 at 5:30 at the Main Street Senior Center.
Thank you for your help and participation to share the light of Christ this Advent.
