An opportunity for mercy in your community

An opportunity for mercy in your community

As supporters of Catholic Social Services, we encourage you to invite any families and individuals you know who are in need to join us for our Uplift Day of Mercy this fall. Have them come down to St. Alphonsus Parish and Eastwood Community League on October 1 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for an afternoon of free services, games, activities, and live entertainment.

In order to make this event possible, we are looking for individuals to volunteer their time with us. Every day our volunteers make a difference in the lives of people we are blessed to serve, and this event will be no different. If you are interested in volunteering for Uplift Day of Mercy, please visit our volunteer page for more information.

As part of this special event, we also welcome the donations of new or gently-used and clean coats and jackets for people of all ages and genders.

In partnership with our generous friends and sponsors at Covenant Health, we will be providing free meals. Other wonderful sponsors are providing on-site haircuts, bicycle repairs, portrait photography shoots, and counselling information for all guests of the event, free of charge.

We invite you to come and give back to the community during this uplifting afternoon of fun.
