St. Mark's Episcopal participating in CARITAS
When we heard that St. Mark's Episcopal needed clothing in their efforts to help the homeless women who would be spending winter nights in the church basement, we jumped to help. The church, along with several other local communities of faith, partner with CARITAS and house homeless people during the cold months. Diversity Thrift donated ten coats.
St. Marks, being the good people they are, also provides a warm, nutritional dinner, breakfast the following morning along with a packed lunch to go.
"Our community's support of Diversity Thrift enables us to do this," stated board chair, Art Toth. An anonymous donor also had the coats cleaned before they were donated to St. Marks.
