October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
CCW Collection for Sarah’s Inn
The weekend of October 27 and 28, St. Giles CCW, in observance, will be collecting pantry staples including toiletries and gift cards or cash contributions to benefit Sarah’s Inn clients. Sarah’s Inn is a locally-based Domestic Violence shelter and counseling agency in Oak Park. They have requested non-perishable food items and toiletries to re-stock their food pantry. They are also in need of gift cards from stores that carry groceries, toiletries, household items, and school supplies, in amounts from $15.00 to $25.00 to be used by their clients.
Some suggested items are cereals, canned goods, snack bars, pasta, pasta sauce, juice boxes, rice, dried beans, fruit cups, boxes of dried fruit.
Please mark your calendars now and bring your items with you to Mass on October 27 or 28. If you don’t have time to shop, we will have a CCW member in the back of church to collect cash contributions and we will go purchase the gift cards.
