From the Parish Office:


We are grateful for your continuing gifts of toiletries (soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes and body lotion – no cosmetics please), self-opening snacks and men’s athletic socks. We have many visitors throughout the week who are need of these items as we are a cooling station in the summer; and we provide funds for state IDs for homeless people. Like In The Garden we are not equipped to handle clothing and recommend the United Methodist Free Store, 946 Parsons Ave. (614) 443-1713; and the Open Shelter, 61 E. Mound St., (614) 222-2885. Thank you so much!


We are in need of shampoo, soap, deodorant, new socks and toilet paper. In order to help clean and store things properly, we do not need other toiletries or clothes at this point, and thank you for your generosity in the past. Going forward, please take any extra clothes you may wish to donate to the Free Store on Parsons Ave. We are not able to store and dispense clothing at ITG in the future!
