Military Outreach Program
Our Military Outreach program exists to serve and support our soldiers abroad, their families at home, and our local veterans. This ministry has an annual collection to organize, collect, collate and ship items to military family members deployed overseas and to an “adopted” unit. Packages are shipped out by volunteers year round, after the spring drive, and in November through the Christmas Care Package program. The Military Outreach Program has worked in partnership with the local VFW Post 9473, St. Vincent de Paul, Girl Scout troops, Latchkey, and the St. Pius X Parish School of Religion (PSR). Do you have a military family member or relative deployed overseas or do you have any questions regarding our program? Please contact us by telephone or email.
