There are two easy ways to give to others this holiday season, and we hope you’ll support our neighbors in need.
Saint Mary’s is again running the Groceries for Seniors program. We are continuing to help area seniors in need with their holiday grocery needs. Donations of money or grocery gift cards can be made to Saint Mary’s University and sent to Campus Box 8. Please designate Saint Mary’s Holiday Groceries for Seniors. Grocery gift cards can also be purchased at HyVee or Midtown and then left there for our volunteers. Donations are needed by Dec. 13.
Toys for Kids has dropped four barrels at Saint Mary’s, two in Saint Mary’s Hall (near the stairwell) and two in the athletics area of the Toner Student Center. There are two ways to support this organization. Financial contributions are always appreciated and can be made out to Toys for Kids and sent to the Winona Community Foundation at 51 E. 4th St., Suite 314, Winona, MN 55987. If you’d rather purchase a fun gift, new toy donations are always encouraged; let’s fill our barrels and let them know Saint Mary’s cares. Toys are distributed to as many as 900 local children, and all toys are given out locally. Donations are needed by Dec. 7, when barrels will be picked up.
