“Under Wraps” Collection Update

7.16.15 “Under Wraps” Collection Update
“The Corpus Christi community overwhelmed us by your generous contribution of undergarments and socks for the homeless.  We sorted out the collection into 76 sets (2 briefs and 2 socks) for men, 42 sets (3 panties & 3 socks) for women and over 2 dozen sets for children.
Fishes and Loaves passed the items out to the homeless on Saturday and Sunday.  We had the opportunity to talk with the men and women we served and received many thanks.  Those thanks go to you.
Since we do not serve food to homeless children, the items collected for them are being donated to Orangewood Children’s Home.  We also have enough to contribute to Isaiah House in Santa Ana.
Thank you again for your generous support and open hearts.  You are the hands of Christ.”
~ Anne S. Lopez (on behalf of LIFT)

 

 

Loaves & Fishes will be collecting for the homeless next weekend –  June 27/28

“Among our tasks as witnesses to the love of Christ is that of giving a voice to the cry of the poor.” (Pope Francis, Address to the Archbishop of Canterbury, 6/14/13)

Pope Francis is inspiring our entire church community to recognize and serve the poor in any way we can.

This month we are opening the community of Corpus Christi to a new possibility of being witnesses of Christ’s love to the homeless. In addition to our regular South County Food Drive on the last Sunday of this month (June), Loaves & Fishes will be collecting new undergarments for men, women and children. We’d like to provide new underwear and socks to the individuals that our Loaves & Fishes ministry feeds EVERY Sunday afternoon.

If you are inspired this week while out shopping, please pick up a package of men’s, women’s or children’s underwear and socks and bring it to church June 27-28. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
