There are 3 ways to get involved:

If you would like to volunteer or have any question, please e-mail Kathie CrossroadsEaster@umich.
We need Easter basket components and lots of candy!Many children are guests at our Easter meal. Help us give each of them an Easter basket as a special gift from St. Mary! Please donate filled Easter baskets or basket making components (baskets, Easter grass-preferably paper, crayons, chocolate bunnies, ‘good for you’ snacks, toiletries, etc.).
In addition to Easter baskets, each meal comes with a small bag of Easter candy. We would greatly appreciate candy donations—mini/fun size wrapped candies are best. Unwrapped candy cannot be used. Please take your Easter basket and candy donations to the parish office by Monday, March 27th.
Make a donation.
Your financial support of this communal meal with our brothers and sisters in Detroit is what makes it happen. Please make checks payable to: St. Mary Student Parish and write “Crossroads Easter Meal” on the memo line. You can also donate on the St. Mary’s website. Thank you, as always, for your tremendous generosity.
