About the Event

OLA's Youth Ministry is excited to team up with Mercy Care again this year to provide warmth to the homeless! Instead of our usual coat drive, we are participating in an initiative that Mercy Care calls the “Packages of Warmth” Drive, which will take place at all Masses the weekend of Oct 23 and 24. 

Although children’s or XL (and bigger) coats will still be accepted, Mercy Care has asked that we primarily collect the following:

  • Winter Caps,
  • Winter Gloves,
  • Winter Scarves,
  • Blankets
  • Socks, and 
  • Masks.

Please do NOT bring items that are not on the list. 

There will be bins at the door at each Mass as you arrive, and we’ll have teen volunteers on hand at each Mass to greet you and help receive your donations!

For any 6th to 12th graders interested in volunteering, please reach out to Andrew at
