Diaper Drive!

Once again St. Anne’s is asking for your generous help for a much-needed cause.  A diaper drive has been set for Sunday, May 13th from 9am – 6pm at the Wescosville Recreation Center.  Donations will be collected as part of a new Lehigh Valley Diaper Bank and will be distributed monthly to local homeless shelters including The Greater Philadelphia Diaper Bank, New Bethany Ministries, and the 6th Street Shelter.

St. Anne’s will collect your donations in the parish hall up until the collection date and then take all donations to the recreation center on Sunday the 13th.   Diapers of all sizes and wipes are needed.  We thank you for your generous and loving support!

SOLE HOPE 

 

 

 

Sole Hope…shoes for children
Offering hope, healthier lives, and freedom from foot-related diseases through education, jobs, and medical relief.
Collected jeans are used to make shoes for the children of Uganda.  They have a tremendous problem with “jiggers” getting in their feet since they don’t have shoes.  We take the used jeans and, using a template we cut patterns for the shoes.  Once we have enough jeans to get started with, we will hold a “shoe cutting” party.  Using a template, we cut the small shoe patterns from the jeans…that’s it!  the shoe patterns are sent to Uganda where they are stitched into shoes for the children. An easy way to recycle jeans and help the children of Uganda to be jigger free.

This is an ongoing project for the Outreach Team.  Whenever we have some jeans to cut they will be made into shoe patterns and sent to the Sole Hope Organization.

You can check out their website at www.solehope.org.  Here you can find out information on jiggers and how the foundation helps.  Or contact Sandy Barette (by contacting parish office).  Sandy works with the organization that sponsors this foundation.
