Gifts of Hope Collection Drive

Maria Bloemendal (Transfiguration Class of 2016) needs your help with her Girl Scout Gold Award project: Gifts of Hope.

She is coordinating a drive to collect a variety of items in order to assemble Gift of Hope bags for those in need. After items are collected, parishioners will be able to personalize the bag further before handing them out to a homeless person in the community (e.g. those they see at a highway ramp, street corner or mall entrance).

There will be a collection bin in the Gathering Space for you to place the following donations:

  • Travel-size toothpaste
  • Socks-Granola Bars
  • Bottled water
  • Small package of tissue
  • Winter gloves

We will be collecting until we have enough to fill 100 Gift of Hope bags. If you have any questions, contact Maria at
