As we approach the Epiphany, St. Veronica’s Guild invites you, in the spirit of the Magi, to help us offer gifts of hospitality to strangers. Bring personal care items to support several ministries that serve people in Atlanta who are poor, homeless, or have mental and emotional disabilities: Crossroads Community Ministries, Emmaus House, Holy Comforter Friendship Center, and Church of the Common Ground.
Some of the items you can donate are unopened hotel and airline toiletries, such as soap, shampoo, deodorant, razors, shaving cream, toothpaste, and toothbrushes.
Place your gifts in the marked containers in the Atrium on Sundays in January, or bring them to the parish Epiphany party hosted by Sara and Donnie Chapman on January 6. St. Veronica’s Guild will organize and deliver your gifts to the ministries listed above. These are small packages, but they help the people served by these ministries in a big way, allowing people to retain their dignity by being clean and healthy.
