Greetings,

 

Last week I reached out to the Superintendent of Houston to ask what we could do to help the people in their community. We spoke for a few moments about the outpouring of love Houston has received and the many generous souls who have called to offer help.

 

As a mother of four, I spoke to her about the pain that I felt while watching the small children on television who had no objects of comfort, and no toys to distract them from the devastation around them. I asked if our diocese could contribute by hosting a teddy bear and blanket drive for the young children. She expressed it was a wonderful idea, as it was the first time she had heard someone suggest something for the small children who are in great need of comfort at times like this.

 

A senior at Trinity, Garrett Kondek, called the Aurora Toy Company and they agreed to sell us soft plush bears and ship them to the Archdiocese of Houston for $8.50 a bear. We can also purchase fleece blankets for the children at $9.99 each to send to families in need.  Any donation to this cause will be greatly appreciated. God bless!

“Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.'” Matthew 25:40
