Mater Dei Uniform Clothing Closet

Mater Dei Uniform Closet was open as a “store front” the weekend of Friday, July 27th – Sunday, July 29th at St. Anthony’s Parish Center.  The “store front” design was used in an effort to make people feel more comfortable while being able to receive uniform assistance for their Mater Dei Students.

We were able to serve the needs of 10 families, totaling 16 students from at least 5 Parishes in our area.  Each student received 5 uniform polos, 1 Mater Dei sweatshirt and shorts and / or pants if available in their size.

We were truly blessed to carry-out our ministry that was initiated by John Hilmes who started this project last year for his Eagle Scout project.  We look forward to serving needs as necessary thru out the school year.  All Parish offices in our area have been emailed our contact information should anyone approach them and need assistance.

Thank you for your support!
