Two weekends each year (Spring and Fall) Nativity has a clothing drive to benefit Catholic Charities and the Seton Center. It provides a great opportunity for Nativity parishioners to clean out their closets and at the same time provide “gently used” clothing to those who are less fortunate or have been marginalized in our community. All parishioners are encouraged to participate by providing donations! Families or individuals interested in helping us organize and promote the Nativity Clothing Drive should contact:

The Nativity Fair Share Food & Article collection is held three times each calendar year (Spring, Summer, and Fall). Fair Share is an opportunity for Nativity parishioners to reach out a helping hand to the needy in our community. The sacks of groceries and other household articles that are collected go directly to benefit the food pantries at Catholic Charities and St. Benedict’s Children Center in Wyandotte County. This partnership helps Nativity to enable Catholic Charities fulfill their mission to serve their clients. All parishioners are encouraged to donate a sack of requested items for the success of the food drive. We welcome and need volunteers and organizers: they are the essential ingredients in making each year more successful than the last!
