In this season of giving, consider donating to a food and clothing drive being conducted from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 12.
Volunteers with Catholic Charities will be in the parking lot of St. Joseph Church, 17951 Dixie Highway in Homewood, collecting non-perishable food for the local South Suburbs pantry.
Donors can also bring clothing items for this drive. As temperatures change, many are in needs of winter wear. Clothing will be donated to the St. Vincent DePaul Society.
Mary Ellen Brabec is organizing the drive. She can answer questions at [email protected].
