St. Mary Parish Shoe Drive

Collection runs August 12 – August 27, 2023

If you want to help in another way, consider donating to the St. Mary Parish Shoe Drive. Started by the St. Mary Human Concerns Committee, this drive is to help gather shoes for kids in the Appleton Area School District. We will accept collections of shoes in the back of the Church and monetary donations for shoes/supplies for kids through Faith Direct. The committee will then buy shoes on a per need basis working with teachers and kid in the Appleton area schools.
