There are so many children, women and men who are without the basic clothing that so many of us take for granted when we wake up each morning. Imagine if your clothing was dirty, torn and lacking for warmth in the winter cold?
Each month, the Franciscan Friars in Kensington, Philadelphia provide 300 to 400 changes of clothing to guests at the St. Francis Inn; many of whom are poverty-stricken families, the physically or mentally disabled and abused. Through the St. Francis Inn voucher program, all guests receive coats, shirts, pants, underwear, and socks to keep them warm on the mean streets.
There is nothing like the warmth of a Franciscan Heart!
A Franciscan Heart captures the spirit of St. Francis and is about making the world a better place to live in. You have a Franciscan Heart when you take The Franciscan Challenge this Christmas.
When you take The Franciscan Challenge you are helping the Franciscan Friars serve over 350 restaurant style meals each day at the St. Francis Inn. You are also providing struggling mothers a safe and secure place for themselves and their children at the Thea Bowman Women’s Center.
Please, help us with your generosity to bring healing and compassion to our world which desperately needs more Franciscan Hearts! Take The Franciscan Challenge!
