Assistance for Tent Communities

Parishioners, Did you know that at any given time, there are 3-5 tent communities at the base of Lookout Mountain? These are folks who do not have permanent homes. In addition to non-perishable food items, baby formula and diapers, band-aids, and antiseptic, we are now preparing for the coming winter months by collecting blankets, coats, and socks for the tent communities in our area. All items can be dropped off at the church office or in the narthex before Mass.
