Guam - Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Yigo is helping residents living in the Zero Down Subdivision and other families in the village who may need help. The parish is hosting a collection drive asking for donations of several items.

Father Jeffrey San Nicolas told KUAM News, "A variety of things such as clothes; we ask that those who bring a donation of clothes to one consider.  If it's something that's still good to use and that the clothes be clean and folded, so it will help us in the distribution we're accepting canned goods and food and toys for children and learning supplies for children."  

Fr. San Nicolas says they're also accepting small pieces of furniture that can be moved in a pickup truck. He adds we all have a responsibility in our faith and society to share the things that we have with those who have less. You can drop off your donation at the Yigo church.

They will be distributed to families on Saturday, September 18.
