White Sock Drive for Saint John’s Center

As one of their service projects this year our Confirmation class will be collecting white socks for the homeless men served by the Saint John’s Center in Louisville.  These are desperately needed by the Center as we enter the cold winter months.  Our kids will have collection boxes with them after all of the Masses this weekend, November 19/20.  Begin Thanksgiving week by donating clean and warm white socks for these men who are so much less fortunate than us!  If you have forgotten to buy/bring socks and wish to contribute to this effort you may give a donation to us and we will use it to buy additional socks to donate to the Center!
