12/4/2018 Holiday Charity Donation Results- Mary's Place
Our 2018 sock drive was a tremendous success. The numbers collected were: 727
pairs of socks, 8 pairs of gloves and 83 hand crocheted hats.
Mary’s Place Refugee Outreach, offers free daytime
programs and services to refugees from many countries including a large
group from Myanmar (Burma) and a number from Nepal and Somalia (climates

learn Job skills, receive food or clothing, get referrals for housing,
etc. Although Mary’s Place has a small staff, it relies heavily on volunteers,
a number of which were once Mary’s Place attendees.
