Un Mois, Une Famille Food & Coat Drive, Sunday November 26

Un mois, une famille

The Cathedral's Mission & Outreach committee is partnering with the Association HOME to support its “Un mois, une famille” initiative. This month help is going to a family of 3 - a hard-working mother/student and her 13 year-old daughter and 11 year-old son. The mother never asks for help and tries to squeeze by. Nonetheless, as the weather turns cold, her kids could use winter coats and the family would benefit from some hearty, warm meals. 

Mission & Outreach is asking you to bring in gently used coats especially for the family, but also of any size as the Association HOME serves a number of families in Ile-de-France. 

Additionally, we are asking for non-perishable food items that will make multiple hearty meals. Cleaning products are also in need. 

Please bring with you on Sunday any of the following items for the food drive:

  • Pasta, Rice
  • Canned vegetables or fruits
  • Seasonings (bottleed spices or cubes)
  • Oil, Vinegar
  • Mustard, Pasta sauce
  • Canned fish (ex. tuna, sardines)
  • Dish soap
  • Cleaning wipes
