Local youth spearhead project to help homeless men

The confirmation class at Bethesda-on-the-Bay Lutheran Church chose a Lenten project to collect undergarments for the homeless men served by the 2100 Lakeside Men’s Shelter in Cleveland. The youth set out on an ambitious goal to collect  400 T-shirts, 400 undershorts and 400 pairs of socks during “Undies Sundays” throughout the Lenten season.

Thanks to their efforts and the generous support of the congregation, the class collected 429 T-shirts, 467 undershorts and 491 pairs of socks with a total value of almost $5,000. The youth personally delivered the undergarments to the Men’s Shelter on Saturday, April 9.
