The Humanitarian Committee completed their 3rd annual Warm Feet, Warm Hearts campaign. The purpose of the campaign was to provide comfort to those who need help this winter, by collecting warm clothing and other items which was donated to Catholic Charities for distribution to those in need in our community.  Thank you to all who donated to the Warm Feet, Warm Hearts campaign.

The La Crosse Warming Center, run by Catholic Charities, provided services to 301 unduplicated guests amounting in 6,414 individual stays last year. This required over 6,700 volunteer hours by 291 volunteers just from our area! Each guest receives a hot meal, shower, a place to sleep, an opportunity to wash their clothes, and help accessing local resources. They are open from November 1st through April 30th.
