The Gift of the Tighty Whities


By Br. Robert Wotypka

Another deep freeze is here. The commitment and generosity of CCS staff, volunteers, donors and benefactors means that the Saint Ben’s Warming Room site is able to welcome overnight guests for as long as the weather remains dangerous.

And the support keeps coming. In the past several weeks the House of Peace has received several cartons filled with newly purchased men’s underwear, which we use at our shower program at the St. Ben’s site. The cartons, sent via an on-line retailer, did not contain any information on the donor – no sender name, return address, or receipt. We welcome all donations, and only regret that we can’t send thank-you acknowledgments when items are received like this. For now we are calling these donations “The Gift of the Tighty Whities.”

May we know God’s peace and all good as we journey through the challenging days ahead.
