Good Shepherd Center:
Many of our parishioners volunteer at the Center.  This is a very warm and loving place. You can volunteer once a week, once a month, or as often as you can.  There are many ways you could be of help: Food Pantry, Treasures, Clothing, sorting donations, helping with a meal, answering the phones and many other things that keep this Center running.  To volunteer just stop in at the Office, which is located at the Food Pantry on Water street and ask to see Janet Smith or Marj Stubert or call 724-588-2210. The Center, which is separate from Food Pantry, is on the corner of Shenango and Water Street.

Project Linus Blanket:
Do you like to crochet, knit, sew?  Project Linus ministry may be a good fit for you! Project Linus provides new, handmade, washable blankets to be given as gifts to seriously ill and traumatized children and children simply in need of a warm blanket, ages 0-18. We have regular events here at St. Michael's called Make-A-Blanket Days. If you sew, please bring along your sewing machine. Don't know how to sew or knit? No problem! You can help us make some fleece tie blankets or color quilt squares instead. All blankets made and donated at our events go to children in Mercer County. In 2019, our Blanketeers made and donated 720 blankets to children in need. You can also work on blankets at home. It is Project Linus' policy to accept homemade blankets of all sizes and styles in child-friendly colors. The blankets must be washable, free of pins, and come from smoke-free environments due to allergy reasons. Finished blankets as well as materials that can be used to make blankets can be donated. Linda Hajtol is our Mercer County Project Linus Coordinator.
Call her at 724-588-3289, for more details.
