Treats for Troops
Throughout the year, St. Rose of Lima parish collects items to support our military through the Treats for Troops program. Donated snacks and self-care items are included in care packages shipped to our service men and women deployed overseas. Treats are also distributed to personnel stationed at the Horsham Air Guard Base.
Please see the list below for items we are currently collecting. Collection Bin is located in the church vestibule. Special Treats for Troops events are advertised in our weekly bulletin.
