Start: Saturday, January 15, 2022
End: Sunday, January 16, 2022
The Veterans Coat & Winter Items Drive is happening the weekends of January 15-16 and 22-23. Nativity of Mary is thrilled to partner with Every Third Sunday (ETS), a veteran support organization. ETS located just 5 blocks from the Minneapolis VA center considers faith to be the keystone to everything they do. They believe modern medicine can treat the physical injuries a vet sustains in service, psychiatry can assist with the emotional difficulties, but the wounds to the soul many veterans struggle with cannot be healed without divine intervention and a belief that we are all here for a purpose.
We are asking the Nativity of Mary community to support this organization by fulfilling the tangible needs of veterans through donating winter coats and other winter items. Below you will find a list of some of their most needed items. Large donation boxes will be placed at the main entrances January 15-23. Please consider donating your gently used items.
Every Third Saturday is in desperate need of:
- Winter coats
- Winter underwear
Other accepted items:
- Blue jeans
- Sweat clothes (XL,2X)
- Diabetic socks
- Men’s boxer underwear
- Women’s briefs (M (6), L(7), XL (8))
