UPLIFT: DAY OF MERCY
UPLIFT is a one day Catholic Social Services event which brings together different organizations, including the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, to provide resources and services to those in need. This event will be held on September 22, 2018 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Eastwood Community League (11803 - 86 Street) and St. Alphonsus Catholic Parish (11828 - 85 St).
UPLIFT will serve and support people living in the inner city with their needs; it will engage new volunteers to come forward; it will engage existing staff and volunteers, and will remind them of the importance of their roles.
Among other services, there will be hair cutting, distribution of winter clothing, personal portraits (photography), bike repairs, etc. There will also be free food and entertainment.
Our participation will be to collect and distribute:
- Winter clothing (clean and gently used or new);
- Adult socks and underwear (new and in packages of 2 or 3 pairs);
- Blankets and sleeping bags (clean and gently used or new).
The goal for 2018 is to collect, Edmonton wide, 1,500 coats, jackets and hoodies, as well as, 10,000 pairs of socks and underwear.
