Summer Tips Based on the Corporal Works of Mercy
Beyond gathering gently used or even new clothing for your parish’s clothing closet or another organization in your local community that provides clothing for the poor, consider how your young adult group might get involved with a microloan program. Microloans (you might be familiar with the terms microfinance and microcredit, too) go directly to places that invest their local economies. They help residents of the area gain skills and the ability to create and sell local products, many of them clothing items. Kiva is one of many reputable agencies that you can work with to make a difference.
