Thanksgiving Food and Winter Coat Drive
Last year St. Martin’s Church delivered almost 100 Thanksgiving meals to shut-ins and served Thanksgiving dinner to over 250 homeless persons. After dinner the homeless were given the opportunity to pick up warm clothes to help them through the winter.
From now until November 19th St. Martins is having a food and coat drive to support this year’s Thanksgiving Dinner.
If you have any warm clothes, socks, hats, glove or coats (especially men’s winter coats) please consider donating them. If you would like to donate food please see the attached flier for instructions. Please drop the clothes or food off at back of St. Martin’s Catholic Church (NW corner of North Capitol Street NW and T Street NW) Sunday morning between 8:00AM and 1:00PM. If you want to drop the clothes or food off on Thanksgiving day please come between 8:00AM and 10:00AM and drop them off at the Church Hall downstairs of the church (entrance on T Street NW).
We continually give out both clothes and food throughout the winter, so any Sunday either clothes or food donations are very much appreciated. Receipts for tax purposes are available upon request.
Peace,Fr. Mike Kelley
