    Hope Emergency House Easter bag project 
    Hope Emergency is an outreach program that distributes food, clothing and household items to an average of 250 families every week.  In addition to the weekly distribution, a special effort is made to help families recover from personal disasters such as home fires and floods. Our services are open to residents of Adams, Brown, Clinton, and Highland counties.

     

    St. Veronica is partnering with Hope Emergency to make 400 Easter goodie bags for the children of the families serviced.  The Stewardship Commission will be adding additional items to the bags when they assemble on March 29th at the Taizé Prayer, Soup and Service Wednesday, March 29 6:00 - 8:00 PM

     

    We are collecting the following items to help fill these bags.  Please donate any of the following items by bringing them to Mass anytime before 3/22.

     

- 8 pack crayons
- Mini note pads (Easter or generic)
- Small travel size toothpaste
- Easter Pencils
