2017 Christmas Collection for Ardmore
Again this year the High School Youth Group will collect gifts for residents of Ardmore Inc. in Summit County. These adults have autism and developmental disabilities. We are asking parishioners to donate any of the following items so that these people will not be forgotten during the holiday season. For 95% of these individuals, the gift bag they receive from Prince of Peace will be their only gift for Christmas. There are about 167 individuals; there are more males than female. Parishioners can donate any of the following items from November 26 through December 17.
Hats, gloves/mittens, scarves, ear muffs, slipper socks, craft items, hand soap, lip balm, nail polish, men’s cologne, small easy games 9no puzzles please), sugar free candy, snacks/goodies (e.g. peanut butter/cheese), snacks/goodies, individual packages of toothpaste and toothbrushes, soap/lotion, mirrors, brushes, combs, fuzzy socks, squish (stress) balls, kitchen towel sets. The High School Youth Group will be making the gift bags on December 17 after the 10:30 Mass at the Noe’s house; Pizza and other refreshments will be served. Please contact Amanda Mullins (HS Youth Advisor) to let her know you will be assisting in this worthwhile cause
