Another way Outreach rolls. It’s time for spring cleaning—and charting out summer travels. If your closets are cluttered with gently used luggage—especially wheeledpieces—you don’t need or are going to replace soon anyway, we have the perfect home for your extras. Outreach is responding to a request for donated luggage from Sarah’s Circle, which serves women who are homeless or in need of a safe space. (Many women need to bring their belongings with them from place to place, so a good piece of luggage can be a blessing, reducing the stress of traveling around town.) Sarah’s Circle mostly seeks donations of luggage with (working!) wheels, but backpacks and personal wheeled shopping carts are also welcome. Our suitcase drive will end with Atonement’s Hygiene Kit Assembly, slated for May 28 after each mass. Drop off your gently used contributions in the narthex in the bin labeled "Hygiene Items" anytime until the 28th. Questions? contact Margaret Sullivan or Wayne Mitchell or send an email to email@example.com.
