    Rosie’s Place Drive

    The Ministry of Justice and Compassion has started a Rosie’s Place drive to collect items for the poor and homeless women who depend on Rosie’s Place for emergency shelter, for a safe place to take a warm shower, or for lightweight summer clothing. The following items can be left in the Rosie’s Place box in the church:
    • Travel-sized Toiletries (like those from hotels)
    • Towels
    • Twin Sheets/Pillow Cases for the emergency shelter
    • T-Shirts
