The Rosary Altar Society is sponsoring a collection of toiletry items to be donated to Interfaith Hospitality of Hunterdon County during the month of September. This is a program that serves homeless families who live in underutilized space in Houses of Worship throughout Hunterdon County saving thousands of dollars in unnecessary infrastructure costs. Each family lives in a room together (much different than typical homeless shelters) and works with inter-faith counselors and various agencies to combat the reasons that made them homeless. Volunteers cook and provide companionship and links to the community. The families stay in the program until they can prove they are stable again but unfortunately, since space is multifunctional, the families must move from church to church weekly. Since Our Lady of Victories Church does not have space to house these families for a few weeks a year, the next best thing is providing toiletries. Supplying these makeshift shelters helps the clients keep their belongings to a minimum as most must use “the Link” for transportation between moves. If you would like more information on Interfaith Hospitality or to volunteer as a counselor, cook or companion, please call Bernadette at 908-996-2838. Items such as Band-Aids, cotton balls, shampoo and conditioner, Q-tips, deodorant and other toiletries are always sought after. Local dentists provide toothbrushes and toothpaste so those items are not needed. You can drop your items into the box in the north transept of our church.

Hi Everyone – once again, I have been asked to lend support to NJ Right to Life by selling raffle tickets - $ 10. This year it will be especially hard for the organization to raise money as my usual customers are at church but with attendance very low and congregating after Mass discouraged in order to maintain social distancing, I fear I won’t be able to sell my usual quota of 30 books.
This year the prize is a 2021 Volvo XC40 AWD SUV valued at $ 41,045. There are 3 other prizes – ShopRite gift certificates valued at $ 500, $ 750 and $ 1000. If you send a check MADE OUT TO - NJ RIGHT TO LIFE, I’ll be glad to fill out your tickets and mail back your half. If you have any questions, please feel free to call my cell at 908-510-4050. My address is: Bernadette Hunsicker
52 Hewitt Road
Stockton, NJ 08559
Thank you for considering this.
