Special Second Collection for Cor Unum this Weekend

October 6-7

We are holding a special second collection this weekend, October 6-7, to support the important work of Cor Unum in light of the recent disaster in Lawrence.

In Lawrence, MA, thousands of our brothers and sisters suffer from hunger. The combination of economic poverty and an unusually expensive housing market leaves many people in Lawrence without enough money to adequately feed themselves. The majority of those who are hungry are members of families who work and do not earn enough income to pay for both housing and food. 

Cor Unum serves nutritious meals seven days a week to hungry people in Lawrence and welcomes and serves all who are in need with dignity, love and respect.

Cor Unum was seriously impacted by the recent tragic events in Lawrence. It lost electricity for a few days, and then went several weeks without gas for cooking. In the interim, Cor Unum was able to provide “to go” bags during regular meal service hours to ensure that no person went hungry. Cor Unum has now successfully converted to propane, and is once again able to provide hot meals to its clients. Our donations will be used to help offset associated increased costs, as well as the costs of the considerable increase in the volume of diners due to the recent disaster.

Donations can be made during the special second collection at all Masses on the weekend of October 6-7. Please make checks payable to St. Paul Parish, noting “Cor Unum” in the memo; we will total funds received from all sources and present one check to Cor Unum. Checks may also be mailed to the Collaborative Business Office (39 Washington St. Wellesley, MA 02481) or dropped at either parish office during business hours.

Donations can also be made online using Online Giving. Anyone can make a secure, one-time donation using the "Quick Give" option - no need to set up an account! Just click the Donate button to the right and select the "Quick Give" option.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
