Charity on Wheels

Beginning in September, the "St Nicholas Charity on Wheels" van will start coming to the parking lot of St. Joseph in Marseilles on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. We chose this day to coincide with the Food Pantry distribution. The van distributes items that are not traditionally distributed by the Food Pantry but are often needed: blankets, towels, school supplies, socks, gloves, baby clothes, diapers, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, etc. There's actually a Wish List on Amazon for them (St. Nicholas Charity on Wheels-Amazon Wish List).
St. Nicholas Charity on Wheels will be here at St. Joseph's on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM.
 In addition to the Amazon Wish List, items can be dropped off during the distribution, or at our office (Monday through Thursday, 9 am to 2 pm).
