Current Volunteer Opportunities
Every January, our parish takes part in the annual “Recycle the Warmth Blanket Drive.”
January 21 through 31, please consider a donation of blankets and sheets to Recycle the Warmth. St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) and the Queen of Peace SVdP Conference partner to distribute bedding to community members in need throughout the year in Dane County. Reflecting on the event, fellow Vincentian Karen Pollack states, “A donation is a heartfelt way to improve an adult’s or child’s life in a very personal way – to stay warm when they are sleeping every day of their life. It’s a very tangible and meaningful experience to make a difference for them and our community.”
Next weekend, take advantage of the contactless drive-thru drop off, January 23-24 before and after every Mass, for new or gently used bedding and blankets. In addition, January 21-31, you may bring your new or gently used bedding to the QP gathering space and place it in the marked donation bin.
There are also ways to participate through St. Vincent de Paul. Donate bedding and blankets at SVdP retail stores through contactless donation. From January 29-31, purchase a new blanket to donate in all SVdP stores, or use the contactless drop off January 30, 10am-2pm at the Middlecamp Center for Vincentian Charity at 2033 Fish Hatchery Road.
Thank you for your prayers and participation. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
