Sharing Our Love Multigenerational Community Project

Make a difference by participating in our “Sharing Our Love” multigenerational community project!  Now through Jan. 23, we are collecting food, clothing and toiletries for the hospitality programs at Broadway Christian Parish. These programs provide SHOWERS, BREAKFASTS, TOILETRIES, LAUNDRY, CLOTHING, TELEPHONE, MAIL, and ADVOCACY for the homeless and less fortunate here in South Bend.  The most needed items are listed below.  Please remember to check expiration dates on food items.  Please also note that we can accept gently used clothing that is washed or dry cleaned. If you are giving used clothes, they must be marked WASHED (use a safety pin to attach washed label). Thanks to our youth and Board for coordinating this project!
