Making Spirits Bright Event

We will be celebrating on January 20 by giving back in the spirit of Mother Marianne

Under one roof, you will have the opportunity to learn about amazing service organizations that strive to better our community every day. These organizations are ready to share information about their mission, the people they serve, projects and events as well as information about how you can help them reach their goals. Representatives will be on hand to talk about the many volunteer opportunities that exist so that each one of us can be a part of making a difference.

Just as Saint Marianne and the Sisters of St. Francis have worked to enhance the lives of individuals in their community, so do these participating organizations. They have placed themselves in the most needy neighborhoods and created resources and outlets of support for those who lack food, money, healthcare, homes, peace and resources.
