Hand in Hand Ministries
St. Albert the Great supports Hand in Hand Ministries in a variety of ways. Throughout the year, St. Albert’s sponsors several collections. Donated Gently Used Toys are collected the weekend following Christmas each year. These toys are donated to Hand in Hand Ministries for children in Appalachia, Kentucky. The weekend of Epiphany, St. Albert’s collects household cleaning supplies (see attached list). These items as well are donated to families in need in Appalachia. Providing financial support to Hand in Hand Ministries is also part of the Social Concerns Ministry at St. Albert the Great.
Our Mission: We build strong communities and transform lives through cultural immersion, education, housing and health care.
