St. Clare parishioners are a dedicated and enterprising group of people that step up to help those in need. Events such as Reachout Night and the preparation of the monthly meal for Love, Inc. are just two ways in which volunteers help out needy families in the community and beyond. Donations are collected monthly for the Helping Hands Food Pantry, and parishioners donate and prepare a meal once a month for Love, Inc. During Reachout Night, volunteers prepare a meal, make blankets, decorate cookies and prepare other items to donate to the Repairers of the Breach homeless Shelter in Milwaukee. The following day, volunteers take the meal and items to the shelter where they serve the meal and spend time with the people who reside there.
In the fall, we collect money for the Food Drive to benefit the House of Peace, located in Milwaukee. These much needed donations go to purchasing items for food baskets for the needy at Christmastime. We are grateful we have such kind and caring members at St. Clare.
There are numerous other ways to help throughout the year. Information on these opportunities can be found in the bulletin, weekly newsletter, and pulpit announcements.
