Support Deployed Troops

This year, St. Anastasia will be collecting items for our deployed military overseas.  This is the 8th year that this organization is collecting gift items to ship. Last year, they shipped 139 boxes, each weighing 40 pounds, to 11 military units in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, South Africa, Korea, Cuba and the military hospital in Germany.

We are asking for toothbrushes, dental floss, chap stick, Q-Tips, band aides, razors & shaving cream, individually wrapped hard candy and snack pack size trail mix.

Also, “typed letters or handwritten greeting cards from you to an American Hero is sure to light-up their face with a smile.  We would be happy to include your cards and letters with your gifts from home.  If you include your return address or email address on your mail or gift, you may receive a note of thanks from our troops and enjoy a new American friendship!”

We will start collecting for the first two weeks of Lent until March 18th.  Please drop off your items to the front office or the gathering space basket by the Ushers room.  Please contact Florence Parent with any questions.

 

Resurrection Home Clothing Drive

Saturday, Marchth  8am – 11:30am

Did you know that St. Anastasia has been providing clothing to Resurrection Home and the residents of Beattyville, Kentucky for over 40 years!  Did you see the CNN piece on Beattyville and how their residents live?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oq-vqvM4Ua0

 

Sr. Mary Kay and Charlene are asking for clean used clothing and small household items.  Your donations are sold for a nominal fee and many times given away for those that have nothing.  These donations truly raise the dignity and self-worth of Beattyville’s hurting families. The families regularly express how grateful they are to St. Anastasia for making it possible for them to provide clothing for their children and grandchildren.

THANK YOU very much for your help!

If anyone is willing to work at the clothing drive or transport clothes to Kentucky, please email Abby/Grace Bright @abby or call Greg Bright at (248) 396-7417.
