Catholic Community Services runs its annual Winter Clothing Drive from mid-January until the end of February (although we gladly accept donations year-round). Usable winter clothing items collected will be distributed free of charge to homeless and low-income persons seeking help at our community service centers in Eugene and Springfield.
Christmas is a special, magical time for young children, so we try to focus on them. That said, we also know that stress of parents drastically affects the entire household, so we try to alleviate some of that stress by examining the entire family situation and finding creative ways to help each family stabilize and improve. The families we serve are going through very difficult times and could use a little Christmas spirit to shine their way. The “Family Needs & Wish List” you will receive as a sponsor is simply a guide. If there are larger, more costly items on the list, please consider donating used items in good condition. All donations are tax-deductible.
