The Builders Club would like to warmly thank the many individuals and families who contributed to Bishop Kearney’s Gift of Warmth winter clothing drive. Thanks to your generosity, this year’s drive was a huge success! Here are the grand totals: 56 coats (that is almost double the amount from last year), 47 hats, 66 sets of gloves/mittens, 31 scarves, 45 sweatshirts/sweaters (many in black and red for the Wilson scholars), 7 snow pants, 7 pairs of socks, and 1 pair of boots.
We plan to hold this drive again next January, so please hang on to any winter gear that your children outgrow this winter!
As I was sorting and counting the items last weekend, I was nearly in tears thinking about the generosity of your donations. One particular donation caught my eye: it was one that someone had placed in a gift bag. How perfect! All these clothes are truly a gift.
We delivered the clothing to Wilson Foundation Academy on Thursday—it actually took us two car trips! When Mr. Walker, the security guard at Wilson, saw all the bags of clothes, he summed it up beautifully: “God is good.”
Again, thank you so very much.
