HRH Gathering Clothing & School Supplies for Area Youth in Need
August 09, 2011
Holy Rosary Healthcare (HRH) Mission Council is holding the eighth annual Christmas in July. The Mission Council partners with the Department of Child and Family Services and the Office of Public Assistance to help families in need outfit their children with new clothes for school.
Children of all ages are available to receive clothing donations. The Department of Child and Family Services and the Office of Public Assistance gather the children's size information from the families who are in need. The gathered information is then anonymously printed on tree tags and hung on a Christmas tree in the HRH Lobby.
In 2010 the project donated new clothing to134 children. The community is invited to pick up a child's tree tag in the HRH Lobby and purchase a new outfit for the child.
School supply donations are also being collected and evenly distributed to local schools. The schools then distribute the supplies to children who need them. Schools have suggested the following items for supplies: Kleenex, pencils, crayons, pencil boxes, glue, glue sticks, erasers, backpacks, folders, blunt-tip scissors, rulers, markers, notebooks, and crayons.
All donations must be delivered to the HRH Human Resource office before 5:00 p.m., Monday, August 15th.
Please contact HRH Human Resource office at (406) 233-2608 for further details.
