We are collecting NEW warm socks for distribution at Grace's Kitchen.  The socks will be delivered on Sat. February 29. 


Please be generous and pick up a package of WARM socks for men, women or children the next time you are shopping.  Warm socks can mean the difference between being able to stay warm in the cold winter days ahead or having frostbite.  This is one item that is not usually distributed at shelters and very much needed. 


Socks may be left in the basket in the Narthex. Thank you for your outreach in this important ministry to St. Bernard's.
