Stand Down is a community-based intervention program designed to help Veterans experiencing homelessness. Veterans are brought together in a single location and provided access to community resources to begin addressing individual needs and rebuilding lives.
St. Pius X Church will collect monetary donations or purchase men's jeans to be given away at the event. Parishioners can also volunteer at the Stand Down event in September 2018 (more details to follow). Our goal is to raise $2,450 to purchase 150 pairs of jeans. SPX Service & Outreach committee members will be on hand to collect donations after all Masses the weekends of June 10th and June 17th.
In 2017, St. Pius X raised $2,400 which supplied 374 pairs of thermal underwear. Please consider giving generously to directly help those in our community in need.
Questions or to volunteer to help with this event, contact Gabrielle Fielstra.
