What is Project Response at St. Maximilian?

Project Response is an Outreach Ministry that was formed in 2000 to assist the needy in our local communities. Volunteers from St. Max work together collecting donations from all parishioners four times per year. This ministry has built success over ten years and now reaches out to the agencies listed below by collecting thousands of food items, clothing, household items, school supplies, baby and personal items as well as thousands of dollars of monetary donations each year.

How do we collect donations:

We provide labeled grocery bags and ask you to bring your items to church You can leave bags at the office breezeway, or an envelope marked “PROJECT RESPONSE” with your check/cash donation. We collect all donations and take them to the Saturday-morning distribution in the St. Max parking lot.
