Mercy Sews has shipped more than 2,500 colorful tee shirts to boys in Central African Republic. The plain tee shirts in solid colors can be purchased at stores like Joann Fabric, Michael's, and Walmart. They are frequently on sale for as little as $2.00. Once a year, the Holy Mothers Collaborative, holds a "Fill-A-Barrel" weekend after Mass. We sell the tee shirts for $5.00 which includes the shipping cost to Africa. Blue 55-gallon cargo barrels are placed at the back of the church and kids and parents can drop in their merciful donations. In addition, tee shirt donations can be dropped off at the St. Mary's Parish Center throughout the year.
