The Shower Project
Our June Outreach Effort
St. Ann’s June Monthly Outreach Venture will support the Shower Project of the Turning Point, a Sunset Park nonprofit. This community outreach initiative invites the homeless in for a shower, change of undergarments and a hot beverage. Each month the Turning Point provides more than 600 showers to members of the Brooklyn community. In 2011, 7,200 undergarments were provided to Brooklyn’s homeless.
Here’s how you can participate: Donate new packaged undergarments; Most needed are men’s sizes Medium, Large and X-large and new warm socks, sizes 9-12. If you can choose a color for the socks, black is preferred over white. Also needed are non-perishable food items, shampoo and deodorant. Bring your donated items to St Ann & the Holy Trinity and drop them off in the Parish Hall (157 Montague St.) or Narthex.
