St. Catherine of Siena
We have again accepted the challenge to raise funds to support COTS at the 32nd Annual COTS Walk – a virtual event this year. COTS is Vermont's largest provider of services for Vermonters who are homeless, at risk of becoming homeless, or marginally housed. This year the COTS Walk is on Sunday, May 2, 2021.
The focus at COTS is on finding solutions to END homelessness – not simply creating shelters for people who are experiencing homelessness.
This year, due to the COVID-19 crisis your support is more critical than ever. Our homeless neighbors are especially vulnerable – many of the guests in shelter are elderly or have compromised immune systems. You cannot shelter at home when you are homeless. Even if you can self-quarantine in a shelter, you are still in very close proximity to other shelter guests, often several to a room in bunk beds.
We are proud to help and "walk" for COTS this year – as they work to provide shelter, services, and support to our most vulnerable families and individuals during this difficult crisis.
Please help support us in this important project by contributing as much as you can. More information about COTS and the Virtual COTS Walk is available at www.cotsonline.org.
Thanks to the Walk sponsors, EVERY DOLLAR raised through the COTS Walk supports shelter and services for families and individuals in crisis.
We are so very proud of our parish and our friends, far and near, who were so generous last year. The St. Catherine's team raised over $7,100 and was one of the top fundraisers of the COTS walk. We hope you can help us again.
