Parish collects items for USO to help returning soldiers
MOORESVILLE — Parishioners of St. Thérèse Church in Mooresville recently contributed to a successful USO collection, organized by the parish's SWAT ladies. Items collected included canned soda, bottled water, gift cards, sandwich bags, lemonade mix, microwaveable popcorn, oral care items, shaving cream and razors, lip balm, batteries, deodorant, decks of cards, candy, gum, tissues and more.
Brian Levine from the Charlotte USO said he appreciates St. Thérèse parishioners' generosity. This collection allows the USO center to assist those in need through June and July, two of the busiest transition months for returning soldiers.
