Lenten Shirt Drive Brings 450 Donations to Migrant Farmers.

 

St. Catherine of Siena parish donated 450 shirts to migrant farmers from our annual Lenten Long Sleeve Shirt Drive.

 

The Life Ministry at St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church organized its Lenten Long Sleeve Shirt Drive.  Members of the Life Ministry organized the drive and packed up the many bags of donated shirts. Pick-up was provided by the Redlands Christian Mission Association, which distributed all long sleeve shirts to migrant farm workers in need of protective clothing. These gently used or new long sleeve shirts protect workers from sunburn, scratches, insect bites, and agricultural chemicals as they pick produce.

The Life Ministry extends their heartfelt gratitude to all who donated to this very important drive.
