Christmas in July School Supply Drive: July 16-24

Our Catholic Works of Mercy needs you!

WE got a call the other day…it was from a grandmother desperate for school supplies for her grandchildren.  She was concerned…thoughtful…sincere…humble and humbled to ask for help for her grandkids.   I assured her WE can help…and – together – we can take care of children and grandchildren in our local community and at Saint Rocco School.

God bless you as you grab a Christmas in July tag off the tree or grab an online tag! All of us together will do much good.

Plan to return the donated items with the item tags attached to the bags by Sunday, July 24, 2022. Bags can be dropped off at the PLC front desk or in any of our Catholic Works of Mercy drop-off bins at the entrances of the church.
