The 25th annual Milwaukee CROP Hunger Walk will be held Sunday, October 10th at 1:30pm beginning at the McKinley Marina. St. Therese will participate and we invite everyone to take part! The CROP Hunger Walk raises funds for global disaster relief, hunger relief, and development. It also collects food for Hunger Task Force which is distributed to food pantries and meal programs throughout the area for free. Last year nearly $68,000 was raised and over 7 tons of food was collected! Let’s all contribute and help make a difference in someone’s life! Help by walking or sponsoring a walker. If you would like to participate, please sign up after any mass next weekend (September 25th/26th) or call Donna Maccani at (262) 309-9212 or Barbara Gritzmacher at (414) 774-1396.

St. Therese Parish is hosting its first Harvest Craft Fair on the weekend of November 7th/8th. We have filled the hall with 26 of the areas crafters, and they are all looking forward to selling their wonderful handmade items. Please join us for this free event, for a great fundraiser and friend-raiser. We have many beautiful handmade raffle items as well, for which you can purchase a chance to win. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. A portion of the proceeds from the raffle will be donated to Hunger Task Force. In fact, if you bring and donate 2 non-perishable food items, you will receive a free raffle ticket. (Limit 2 free tickets per person.)

Concessions will be available all weekend, including donuts and coffee on Saturday morning. There will be a separate room where you may sit and relax away from the bustle of the fair while you enjoy your food.

Entertainment Books will also be on sale all weekend. A Milwaukee-area edition is only $35 ($5 off the cover price!) and you can take it home with you and start saving immediately. Perhaps you have relatives out-of-town, or perhaps your family has a “summer home” in some other part of the country? You will be able to order an Entertainment book from any region of the country for anywhere from $25-$40. Canada and Puerto Rico editions are also available. Payment is due on purchase, so please plan ahead! Checks will be accepted for Entertainment Books only. Remember, they make great Christmas gifts!

This is a completely indoor, handicap-accessible event, with ample free parking. We hope to see you there!

Now, we still need plenty of volunteers in order to make this event a successful fundraiser for the parish. If you are willing and able to volunteer a few hours of your time on the weekend of November 6th-8th, please call Courtney in the Parish Office to discuss your availability. We especially need help for set up and clean up.

We are also in need of some food items for our concession stand. We need cookies/bars/brownies, cans of diet soda, individual-size bags of chips, shredded cheese and shredded lettuce. Please, shredded only. If you are able to donate any of these items, please bring them to the Parish Office any time during business hours next week, or on November 7th from 6:00-8:00pm.

We are looking forward to this event, and we believe it will be quite successful, but we need your help to pull it off. If you have any questions, please email the Craft Fair Coordinators with any questions you may have. Thank you for anything you can do!
