Several times a year, OLG host special donation drives to support local organizations. During Lent, we collect food/staples for St. Vincent de Paul through our "Pounding Tree". Over the summer, we collect back-to-school clothes and supplies for foster youth in partnership with Treehouse and fresh produce through Lettuce Pray. Prior to Christmas, we collect Shoeboxes of Joy for people in Catholic Community Services' Volunteer Chore Services program. We also do a Christmas Giving Tree for Treehouse foster children and the residents of Catholic Housing Services' Santa Teresita transitional housing complex.
Throughout the year, we have ongoing collection boxes out in the church narthex for TerraCycle, St. Vincent de Paul and our Homeless Care Packet Ministry.
OLG's parish school also does a variety of collections during the year. Check the school website for more information.
