Necessity Sunday • Collection for the New Canaan Food Pantry
The food pantry is always in need of supplies for its guests. We will be hosting a special drive in Lent to restock the shelves with some specific items on Sunday, March 26. Items especially requested: Toilet Paper, Kleenex tissues, sponges, dish soap, pods of laundry detergent, toiletries: tooth paste, tooth brushes, shampoo, lotions, deodorant for men and women, shaving cream and razors.
Clean out your closets and benefit our veterans! St. Mark’s, in conjunction with St. Mark’s Preschool, will be holding a clothing drive to benefit Save-A-Suit, a 501c3 organization that provides veterans with professional business attire for transitioning from active service to a civilian career. Cleaned, gently used and new items will be collected beginning on Sunday, April 2 through Friday, April 7. All clothing appropriate for the workplace will be accepted, for both men and women. Items must be dry cleaned or new. Unclean/stained/damaged items will not be accepted. If you would like to volunteer to help with the drive, please contact Beth Ralston at firstname.lastname@example.org. To make a financial donation, please visit www.saveasuit.org/donate.
