SOCIAL KNITWORKING: HOMEMADE SCARF AND HAT DONATION DRIVE

Social Knitworking: Homemade Hats and Scarves Drive

November 1 – December 21

You’ve heard of social networking but how about social KNITWORKING? If you knit or crochet (or know someone who does), please help us by donating handmade hats and scarves this holiday season. Human connection happens in person and in the ways we utilize our personal talents and skills to help our brothers and sisters. Hand-knitted hats or scarves touch those in most need of comfort and solace. Click here to help!

Socks in the City: Sock Donation Drive at St. Anthony's

Socks in the City: Sock Donation Drive

November 23 – December 21

For those on the street, feet matter! Do something to show you care: donate new socks to St. Anthony’s. We collect donations of socks (one of the most-requested items in our Free Clothing Program) every year during Socks in the City, since access to shoes and socks is often limited for homeless men and women living in shelters and on the street. Wet feet (and pain from constant standing and walking in ill-fitting shoes) takes its toll. The best way to prevent such conditions is to keep feet clean and dry—very difficult if you spend your days outside. Click here to help!

St. Anthony's Winter Shelter

Winter Shelter Opens

December 17

Our Dining Room is converted to an overnight shelter each evening for our homeless guests during the coldest and wettest months. St. Anthony’s Winter Shelter not only helps people in dire need, but is also a critical component of our organization and a community concerned about the health and livelihood of people who are homeless. The Winter Shelter provides a unique opportunity for St. Anthony’s trauma-informed staff to be hyper-focused on shelter guests each night, recognizing and meeting urgent life-saving needs and giving them hope for a better tomorrow.

Curbside volunteers collect turkeys and other food donations for the Thanksgiving Day meals that will serve homeless people.

December 20 – 24

During this year’s week-long donation drive to collect much-needed items to be distributed throughout the rest of the year, we are in need of protein items such as whole turkeys, hams, chicken, canned fish, and peanut butter.
