St. Anthony’s Human Concerns Commission
St. Anthony’s Human Concerns Commission (HCC) follows the outline of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in responding to the needs of the people of our parish as well as the wider community of Kenosha. The Human Concerns Commission sponsors the annual Alzheimer’s Walk, Blood Drive and Right to Life events in cooperation with other parishes and NGO’s. Additionally, HHC has responded to the needs of the less fortunate in Kenosha with donations of food in feeding the homeless.
Within our own parish, we reach out to our parishioners in nursing homes and look for ways to meet the needs of our fellow worshipers in Christ.
Christmas Giving Tree
The Human Concerns Commission extends a huge heartfelt “Thank You” to all the donors of this year’s Christmas Giving Trees.
More than 155 new towel sets and more than 85 new children’s toys were donated. Donors, your generosity is a credit to you, our St. Anthony of Padua parish, and the Catholic Church.
May God bless you abundantly for your generosity and your demonstrated love of the less fortunate.
College Care Packages
Every year, care packages are created and sent to parishioners in college or the military to let these young people know St. Anthony is keeping them in prayer. These boxes are filled with greetings from Fr. Todd, snacks, school supplies, rosaries and moree.
God’s Kitchen Thanksgiving Meal
Arnetta Griffin, of God’s Kitchen, welcomed Kenosha residents to her annual Thanksgiving Meal held at St. Anthony of Padua Church on November 20, 2021. Pat DeGrace and the St. Anthony Human Concerns Committee coordinated with Ms. Griffin in order to bring this event to St. Anthony’s Hall. Over 100 individuals were served a delicious meal prepared by Arnetta and volunteers. Families and children were in attendance. Free haircuts, donated clothing, and children’s books were available to any patron that wished to take advantage of the opportunity.
