October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

CCW Collection for Sarah’s Inn

The weekend of October 21 and 22, St. Giles CCW, in observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month will be collecting pantry staples, laundry detergent and gift cards to benefit Sarah’s Inn clients. Sarah’s Inn is a locally based Domestic Abuse shelter and counseling agency in Oak Park. They have requested non-perishable food items to re-stock their food pantry, laundry detergent and gift cards from stores that carry groceries, toiletries, household items, school supplies, etc. in amounts from $15.00 to $25.00, to be used by their clients. Some of the items requested are canned foods, boxed cereals, snack bars, pasta, pasta sauce, juice boxes, rice, dried beans, fruit cups, etc.

Bring your contributions with you to Mass on October 21 or 22 and a member of the CCW will be in the back of church before and after Mass to gratefully accept it. Don’t have time to shop or you just want to contribute toward a gift card, that is great also. Our members will purchase the gift cards with your cash contributions.
