Donate Your Unneeded Items to "Bundle Weekend" Charity Drive at St. Rene

The Two Holy Martyrs chapter of the St. Vincent de Paul Society is hosting a bundle weekend from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 28 and from 7 a.m. to noon Sunday, May 29 in the church parking lot on the St. Rene campus, 64th and New England.

This is the time to sort through those items you don’t want or need any more. The society is collecting bed linens, blankets, quilts, kitchen and bath towels and washcloths, small kitchen appliances such as toasters, blenders and coffee makers, glassware and silverware, framed artwork, holiday items and table and floor lamps.

Clothes are always welcome, whether it be men’s or women’s and especially kids’ clothing. Shoes, socks, ties, jackets and coats are also accepted.

Other items are accepted, such as suitcases, record albums and compact discs, books, computers, keyboards and printers.

Unfortunately, due to space restraints, no large furniture or appliances can be accepted. Also, any baby items that can be potentially recalled, such as strollers, car seats or cribs, will not be accepted.

You can drop off your items at the truck marked St. Vincent de Paul in the parking lot on the days it will be there.

For more information, contact the Two Holy Martyrs rectory at (773) 767-1523 and ask that a St. Vincent de Paul Society member give you a call back.
