Bring Your Shoes to Church

Clean out your closet and bring shoes you no longer need to help someone in need. Brother Stan Goetschalckx ( and the Brothers of Charity are conducting a fund raising used SHOE DRIVE to pay three months of rent on their Caritas Opportunity Thrift Shop on 7716 Georgia Avenue NW. We are asking members of various parishes to donate unwanted used shoes to this cause. May we count on your generosity? Use this plea as incentive and opportunity to liberate your closets of all pairs of shoes (of all genders, materials, and sizes) that you are no longer using.

“By their works you will know them,” said Jesus. Help us add a short display of hands-on community involvement to our usual focus on doctrine and policy. Please bring your used shoe donations to St. Margaret’s Church next three Sundays. José Luis Sánchez ( and another Caritas Thrift Shop volunteer will be collecting them on Sundays Feb. 24 and March 10. Jim Sweeny + a Caritas volunteer will be collecting them on Sunday March 3. MANY THANKS!
