We have been in touch with our dear friend, Father Rich Vila,
who is the Associate Pastor at St. Benedict's in Holmdel, NJ.
His parish and community need our help!
We will be heading to New Jersey with a truckload of supplies in the very near
future. Here's how you can help.
Prayer—please pray especially for the families
with infants or elderly members
Monetary donations (preferred)—drop off your
monetary donations in the parish office—check payable to St. Andrew Apostle
(memo: hurricane relief)—and we will shop for you!
Send a check directly to St. Benedict Catholic
Church (check payable to St. Benedict) address: 165 Bethany Road, Holmdel, NJ
Purchase an item from this "requested list" and
drop it off in the narthex:
HEAVY DUTY TRASH BAGS, HEAVY DUTY WORK GLOVES
SOCKS AND UNDERWEAR, SWEAT SHIRTS AND SWEAT PANTS
NON-PERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS, PROTEIN BARS AND PROTEIN DRINKS
TOILETRIES, HAND-SANITIZER, FACIAL WIPES
BABY FOOD, CANNED BABY FORMULA, DIAPERS, WIPES
CLOROX WIPES, PAPER TOWELS, ALUMINUM FOIL.
Deadline for drop-offs: Thursday, November 8. Since we have so many different
collections going on in the Narthex, and very limited storage space, our
preference at this time would be for Monetary Donations (ear-marked for
hurricane relief). Thank you for your generosity!
