St. Anthony Stuff the Bus
October 9, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
Help the parishioners of St. Anthony in Fairport stuff the bus to help homeless stay warm.
Coats (adult sizes L – 4xl)
Boots (on some occasions and only if they are clean and serviceable)
Socks (NEW ONLY!)
PLEASE: No pants. No dresses. No undergarments. No toys.
Blankets are not a big need although we have places that will take them. Blankets and comforters are not practical for most homeless. Unfortunately, wet is a factor as much as cold and blankets get wet and become burdensome items to carry for somebody who has no place to leave them.
We also do not have much room for children’s sizes as we don’t find kids in the places we go. Typically, most kids get into shelters with special arrangements and accommodations geared towards people their age. We have places to take items donated for children, however, children’s items take resources to sort, store and transfer.
