HAITI NEWS: There will be a collection of over-the-counter medicines and shoes for our twin Haitian parish of St. Michael the Archangel during the weekends of April 3/4 and 10/11.
Medicines needed for the collection are Tylenol, ibuprofen, antacids, vitamins, cold and cough medicines, eye and ear drops, antifungal creams, antibiotic creams, hydrocortisone cream and any other new and unopened medicines. Toothbrushes and toothpaste are also needed. We will also be collecting new and gently used shoes, sneakers, sandals, and flip-flops (please tie together).
Medicines and shoes may be placed in the boxes in the back of the church during the above weekends. Collected medicines and shoes will be sent to Haiti on the sea container during the third week of April. Medicines and shoes are items that are always needed by the people of Haiti, but even more so since the earthquake has caused so much misery in Haiti.
Thank you all for your donations, the people of our twin parish greatly appreciate your generosity.
