We at St. Martin’s Hospitality Center wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to Jeff Turcotte and the Cross-Country team at St. Pius X High School (the “Sartans”) and to Tom Mescall and the Notre Dame Club of New Mexico for organizing the first ever “Sartans for St. Martin’s Fun Run/Walk” on November 12th!
See pictures on our Facebook page.
We also want to thank every participant of this event, and all who brought donations for our clothing room and/or gave monetary donations. We are excited at the prospect that this could become an annual event!
Donations included: 43 pairs of men’s socks, 18 pairs of women’s socks, 27 pairs of kids’ socks, 25 men’s coats & jackets and 11 women’s coats & jackets; 10 hoodie sweatshirts; men’s and women’s jeans, warm clothing and dress clothes for work; gloves & scarves; blankets; and toiletries (shampoo, toothbrushes/toothpaste).
The 300 to 400 homeless individuals and families who come to our center daily, and many more who are residents in our supportive housing programs, will directly benefit from your generosity!
