Every year during Advent, OLQP prepares shoebox gifts for homeless men and women in the community and the families served by our parish Food Pantry. Fill a shoebox with items such as socks, gloves, shampoo, tooth brush, tooth paste, soap, lotion, comb, nail clippers, razor, candy bar, a street spoon or fork, small salt and pepper shakers, small flashlight. Due to the numbers, we ask that most gifts be suitable for men or unisex. Or you can buy a bulk package of any of the listed items and the wrapping team will fill a box for you. Bring shoeboxes, empty or filled, on Sunday, December 10 from 9 am till 7:30 pm when they will be wrapped. Volunteers are needed and wrapping paper, tape, cards and scissors will be provided. If you wrap your box yourself, please attach a note indicating if it is for a man, a woman, or unisex. Sign up for one hour shifts starting at 11:15 am in the Founders Room. Contact Melissa Crawford to reserve a time slot: firstname.lastname@example.org
We invite you to support the parish in providing lunch for 29 elders of the Nauck community and 35 SEEC day laborers. Each week a group of volunteers shops, prepares and packages 64 lunches for Shirlington Day Laborers and Freedman’s Organization through the Brown Bag Lunch Program. The Giving Tree supports this effort: take a ‘brown bag angel’ ornament from the basket under the giving tree in the sanctuary, place your donation inside the ornament and hang it on the tree. The tree will be in the sanctuary through the Christmas season.
