Veterans Coat & Winter Items Drive

Start: Saturday, January 15, 2022

End: Sunday, January 16, 2022

The Veterans Coat & Winter Items Drive is happening the weekends of January 15-16 and 22-23.  Nativity of Mary is thrilled to partner with Every Third Sunday (ETS), a veteran support organization.  ETS located just 5 blocks from the Minneapolis VA center considers faith to be the keystone to everything they do.  They believe modern medicine can treat the physical injuries a vet sustains in service, psychiatry can assist with the emotional difficulties, but the wounds to the soul many veterans struggle with cannot be healed without divine intervention and a belief that we are all here for a purpose. 

We are asking the Nativity of Mary community to support this organization by fulfilling the tangible needs of veterans through donating winter coats and other winter items. Below you will find a list of some of their most needed items. Large donation boxes will be placed at the main entrances January 15-23.  Please consider donating your gently used items. 


Every Third Saturday is in desperate need of: 

  • Winter coats 
  • Boots
  • Hats
  • Gloves
  • Winter underwear

Other accepted items:

  • Blue jeans
  • Shirts
  • T-shirts
