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

Christmas Curbside

December 20 – 24, 2018

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. For health and safety reasons, we are not able to accept pastries, pies, cakes, or bread, unless it comes directly from the producer or supplier.

P.S. You can contribute year-round by visiting our virtual grocery shopping experience, where your dollars go farther using our bulk food purchasing power.

SOCIAL KNITWORKING: HOMEMADE SCARF AND HAT DONATION DRIVE

Social Knitworking: Homemade Hats and Scarves Drive

December 1 – December 21, 2018

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.

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

Socks in the City: Sock Donation Drive

December 1 – December 21, 2018

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.

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

Thanksgiving Curbside

November 17 – 22, 2018

During this year’s Thanksgiving donation drive to collect much-needed items to be distributed throughout the rest of the year, we gratefully protein items such as whole turkeys, hams, chicken, canned fish, and peanut butter. The donations were used in our Thanksgiving meal in the Dining Room, and will also help to sustain us throughout the rest of the year.

P.S. You can contribute year-round by visiting our virtual grocery shopping experience, where your dollars go farther using our bulk food purchasing power.
