What a great idea for a service project!

Yesterday, the St. Francis 6th grade girls brought a couple items from the St. Joseph wish-list and a $95 Target gift card.  They had put together a garage sale as a service project and donated the proceeds to St. Joe's. 
Thank you to the group of 6th graders from St. Francis of Assisi School in West Des Moines for generously thinking of the needs at St. Joseph Emergency Family Shelter.
St. Joseph is registered at Target for items needed to complete the shelter expansion. New sheets, pillows, alarm clocks, and all of the basic household items we all use daily are need to make St. Joseph a true home for the families that stay there.
You can go to click on Gift Registries + Lists and use St. Joseph Shelter as the first name and Catholic Charities for the last name.
Your donation will be sent to Purcell Printing in Urbandale who has generously offered to collect items until St. Joseph’s is ready for them. Which will be here before we know it! Save to
