Undie Sundays

On Undie Sundays, March 12, 19 and 26, St. Paul’s will collect new underwear, diapers and pull-ups in all sizes for boys and girls for the Salvation Army’s Center of Hope family residence.

The shelter also needs new bath towels and washcloths.

Leave your donations in the specially marked collection boxes in the Goodheart Entrance and outside the chapel.
