The local “Help for the Homeless” group held its annual collection drive, gathering more than 1,500 items, including toiletries, socks, hats, gloves, scarves and blankets for homeless individuals.

The group included students from St. Stephen Martyr School, St. Martha School and youth from St. Paul Church, who also learned about homelessness. 

The group was created in 2020 by Joyce Curry, a St. Stephen Martyr parishioner, to give young people an opportunity to perform service projects during the pandemic. Since then, Curry said it has grown to include other students — friends of the students — from Jefferson County Public Schools, including Noe Middle.

The items they collected were delivered to the Schuhmann Social Service Center, an outreach ministry of the Shrine of St. Martin of Tours.
