Changing Lives, Building Futures
The Seton House Van Outreach Program travels the city bringing drinks, snacks, toiletries and a dose of caring to teenagers who are choosing life on the street over a dysfunctional situation at home. We can help. While out shopping, please consider throwing one of these items in your cart.
Travel size you name it: soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, lip balm and sun tan lotion; package of 8oz cups (no larger); large container of flavorade; bag of sugar for Flavorade preparation; gift card ($5.00) to fast food restaurants; small container mosquito spray; packages of individual wrapped hand wipes; white athletic socks (crew, ankle or “no show” variety); reams of paper (white, pastel blue, pink, yellow, green and lavender), Citgo Gas Gift Cards to help with fuel expense for the street outreach vans.
BJ or Sam’s Club size pack of identical snacks (Odd as it may sound, because of competition amongst the kids (we don’t want to play favorites etc) we need snacks of a certain size and quantity like pre-packaged cookies, crackers, and Halloween size candies).
Please drop fast food gift cards in the offering plate or leave in the office. Leave other items in narthex.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR THE SETON YOUTH SHELTERS
Both the boys and the girls shelters at Seton are running at or near capacity. This means we need additional staffing, but that comes at a significant cost. You can help by making a donation to Seton or you can also help by vounteering your time. Everything from people to staff the shelters in the evening, to helping with meal preparation on the weekends, to mentors for the mentoring program.
“Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers, that you do unto me.” (Matthew 25:40)
