Each spring our community comes together to support St. Francis House with a Men’s Clothing Drive, and each year the drive is a huge success because of your generosity and grace. This year’s drive will take place June 1-2. St. Francis House serves approximately 50 clothing appointments per day (Monday-Friday) which is 250 full sets of clothing per week to their guests in need. Please join us in helping by donating clean, practical clothing. Your efforts and generosity are appreciated by the thousands who come to St. Francis House each year for a fresh pair of clothes in times of need.
