Sainte-Sabine Church Donates Handmade Cold Weather Clothing to Local Veterans – Press and Guide
Clergy, leaders and parishioners of St. Sabina Catholic Church recently donated a quantity of handmade cold weather clothing and supplies to the Dearborn Allied War Veterans Council and donated a monetary contribution to the Dearborn Heights Firefighters Charitable Fund.
The Church’s Crafters Club donated several hand-knitted, crocheted and sewn scarves, hats and other cold weather items to local veterans, which were accepted by Mayor Bill Bazzi on behalf of the DAWVC – a local veterans group that helps meet the needs of veterans across the region. Bazzi served several years as the commanding officer of the DAWVC.
Additionally, Fr. James Lopez and Parish President Val Schuster recently joined Fire Chief Dave Brogan, Bazzi and City Councilor Hassan Ahmad at Dearborn Heights Fire Headquarters to present a monetary donation of $ 1,165. to further support the work of the department.
The funds, which were raised during the church’s annual nursery, were accepted on behalf of the fire department’s charitable fund.
âWe are happy and grateful to the good people of Saint Sabina for their thoughtful giving,â said Bazzi. âThese articles and backgrounds are certainly welcome and much appreciated, especially by all who will benefit from them this winter. “
