hockey team has taken on a special service project. They would like to
assist Emily's Place which serves homeless young women. The team is
trying to gather as many items as they can to help give these young
women a chance to get off the streets and sleep in a warm house.
They come without normal house items that we all take for granted. Some
items they need include soap, detergent, coffee, toothpaste, shampoo,
conditioner and anything else that seems fitting. The team's goal is to
gather as much stuff as possible during their game on Saturday, January
23rd. Also, there will be a basket at Cathedral the following school
week where people can drop off any other things they have to contribute.
All supplies will be delivered to the house for these women to use
ASAP. As you do your shopping this weekend, please add an item or two
for Emily's House. Thank you for your support!
