Social, Service and Spiritual
The Little Flower Catholic Youth Organization is off to the “races” this year.
CYO is starting the year with its “Amazing Race”, a drive to collect gently-used winter clothing – coats, hats, gloves, mittens and scarves – for those in need. The organization is working on the drive with Northern Plains Electric Cooperative.
According to CYO secretary Kade Leier, part of CYO are the three S’s: “social, service and spiritual”.
“As a group the coat collection is one of the things that we want to do for CYO. For the Spiritual part of the CYO we pray and go in groups together to Mass. The Social part of this project is spending time together, going around to houses to collect coats and wash them. And the Service part is donating the coats to families who are less fortunate and need the winter items for the North Dakota winters. It means a lot to the group that we do this,” stated Leier.
From 5-7 p.m. on Oct. 31, CYO members will be going door to door. Instead of hearing “trick or treat”, area residents will hear “Do you have any winter wear to donate to CYO?”
Items can be donated throughout the month to Little Flower Catholic Church, and must be labeled as “CYO Coat Donations.” CYO members will launder and transport the items to Cando, where Northern Plains will distribute them..
The officers for CYO’s 2015-16 term are: Rebekah Wangler, president; Jacob Blessum, vice president; Leier, secretary; Kaitlyn Boucher, treasurer; Matty Koenig, historian/senior high school representative.
