Get Ready for Our Next Parish-wide Service Project

In January 2018, St. Cecilia Parish participated in a very successful clothing drive for the St. Vincent de Paul Society’s Thrift Store of Waterloo. Multiple truckloads of donations were accepted and loaded. The success was captured in the photo below and in the April 6, 2018 issue of The Witness.

Our next parish-wide service project will be the collection of personal paper products to benefit area organizations that provide shelter and/or daycare services to our brothers and sisters in need.

We believe factors that led to the success of clothing drive also apply to this project:

The ability for all parishioners to participate. Unlike many projects in which we see the same volunteers, everyone is encouraged to chip in to the best of their ability. Even young children can “earn” their contributions by completing chores at home.

Our contribution will again be tangible and visual. As the pile begins to take shape, it motivates others to add their contribution.

Contributions go directly to those in need with zero administrational costs.

Parishioners are requested to bring donations to Masses the weekend of January 25-26, 2020.

Here’s a list of the personal paper products that we’re collecting for the Parishwide Service Project:

  • Diapers (all sizes and ages)
  • Baby wipes
  • Cleaning wipes
  • Paper Towels
  • Toilet Tissue
  • Facial Tissues
  • Feminine Hygiene Products
  • Recyclable (cloth) grocery bags (to be used during distribution)
  • Cash (to be used to purchase above paper-based products)

Remember your contribution the next time you’re at the store. This is a cause we can all roll with!
