2016 Community Service Schedule
2016 Kickoff Meeting Socks & Underwear Collection
Benefitting the Association of the Ladies of Charity Clothing Center
The community service committee is kicking off this year with collection of NEW socks and underwear to be donated to the Association of Ladies of Charity Clothing Center.
Last year, the EGJG was able to grant the Ladies of Charity a portion of the funding they had requested through our granting process. Since we were not able to fulfill their full request, we are spearheading this collection to help them meet the undergarment needs of approximately 1,100 Milwaukee school children. For more information on the Clothing Center run by the Ladies of Charity click here.
Desired items include:
- Briefs, boxers, or boxer briefs for boys
- Girl’s and women’s briefs
- White athletic, patterned, or dark colored socks for boys and girls
- Items of all sizes are welcome, including adult. The recipients are boys & girls grades PK-12th
If you see any of these clothing necessities on sale while you are out shopping for back to school supplies or any other occasion, please consider tossing one in your cart! Socks and underwear will be collected at the September 13th kickoff meeting. If you are unable to attend the meeting and would like to donate, items can be dropped off at Kayte Parkin’s home (13820 Grant Pl) until September 14th.
Items can be any style, from any store.
Please leave all items in their original packaging.
