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.
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!
