Foot Care Event on Maundy Thursday During Holy Week
When you did it for the least of my brothers and sisters, you did it for me. -Matthew 25: 31-46
Following the example of Jesus, this foot care event is held on Maundy Thursday during Holy Week. Podiatry Residents from OSF Saint Anthony will wash the feet of our homeless guests, trim their nails, and make referrals for further care, if needed. Generous financial donations from individuals and businesses make it possible for volunteers to provide a new pair of shoes and socks to each guest, as well as a delicious lunch.
In order to once again make this event a success, we are looking for your help. We invite you to join the community members who work so hard to organize this effort. From a donation of new shoes to an online gift of $10 bucks, each and every act of support helps. Your generosity makes a lasting impact on our guests. Continue reading to learn how to give.
