St. Francis continues its annual Lenten outreach, providing as many pairs of shoes as it can to meet the needs of its homeless brothers and sisters. New this year, it is also collecting CARTA Bus Passes to help those needing transportation to job interviews and medical appointments.
Organizers said, "The need is monumental and contributions help support Brother Ron Fender at the Community Kitchen who ministers to the homeless."
The church is accepting donations of new or nearly-new men’s walking shoes (larger sizes are much needed), women’s walking shoes, new socks and other foot care products, and CARTA Bus passes. These items will be blessed Maundy Thursday, March 28 at the 7 p.m. liturgy.
There is a collection barrel in front of the church or you can mail a check (please indicate this is for Brother Ron or Community Kitchen) to: St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church, 7555 Ooltewah-Georgetown Road, Ooltewah, Tn. 37363.
Drop off all donations at St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church. For more information, please call 238-7708 or email email@example.com.
