Caroline, a Junior at SHHS and a member of our Faith in Action group organized a “We Care” collection for travel-sized toiletry and personal care items that had to be cancelled due to churches closing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, several parishioners did drop off a good assortment and number of items outside the parish office.
On May 15th, a severe storm caused roofs to collapse in a Holyoke neighborhood. Over 100 families lost their homes and donations of toiletries were being asked for. Caroline sprang into action and on May 22nd, Caroline and her mom, Michele, delivered the donated toiletries to Family and Friends of the Holyoke Community’s collection point at Holyoke High School.
