Welcome baskets for migrants at Burma Farm

Deacons and parishioners from our Catholic parishes in the Livingston Vicariate met the first week of July at St. Mary Parish, Pinckney to prepare 111 Welcome Baskets for migrant employees and their families who have been living and working at the Burma Farm in Gregory, MI for the several months during this farming season.  The parishes contributed basic household needs, including laundry soap, dish soap, shampoo, body wash and bar soap, toothpaste and tooth brushes, towels and wash cloths, and paper products.  The effort was organized by Deacons Jerry Brennan, Randy Coffelt, , Endre Doran and Dave Scharf, with the assistance of Livingston County parishioners and the staff of Livingston County Catholic Charities.
