Through the Reach Out program, the parish community assists the poor by donating food and cash to Sts. Teresa and Bridget parish on the first full weekend of each month. Special collections during the year include a Blanket Collection in January, a Sock & Underwear Collection for Valentine’s Day, a Birthright Collection for newborns during Lent, School Supplies in Septem ber, Toy Collection in December for Sts. Teresa and Bridget parish, the Christmas Giving Tree for Sts. Joachim and Ann Parish in Old Mines, which are distributed by the Rural Parish Workers. These are regular opportunities for all to do as Jesus asks and to give to the least among us.
