The Holy Year of Mercy calls all believers to serve others through corporal works of mercy.
With a focus on clothing the naked, the Office of Lifelong Faith Formation and Catholic Charities Maine will hold a “Winter Warm-Up” to collect new clothing for men, women, and children in need.
On Saturday, February 6, at 10 a.m., all are invited to drop off items at one of three Threads of Hope thrift stores:
Portland (Union Station Plaza on 244A St. John Street)
Sanford (Shaw's Plaza on 1364 Main Street)
- Caribou (14 Old Van Buren Road)
Bishop Robert P. Deeley will be in attendance at the Portland collection, Fr. Tom Murphy in Sanford, and Fr. Jean-Paul Labrie in Caribou.
From vintage clothing to second hand furniture, to shoes, handbags, dishes, lamps – and even art – Threads of Hope thrift stores offers a variety of goods at reasonable prices with all proceeds going to directly fight poverty in Maine.
The Portland and Sanford stores support over 25 Catholic Charities programs statewide, while the three stores in Aroostook County support the Food Bank.
Threads of Hope is on a mission to make life for all Mainers – those who can help and those who need help – look better.
