Our donations this month will be delivered to the food pantry at St. Anthony’s in south city. The holidays are a special time for families. It’s a time of gathering and sharing. For some families this is quite a challenge. It is often difficult to provide basic needs of food, shelter and the utilities much less gifts and extras. Your donations of food can lessen this burden and help provide a more joyful and giving Christmas for others. Thank you for your generosity at this special time and throughout the year.
Baskets will be in place on the altar at the Masses. Yellow bags are handed out each month to assist and remind folks to save up their donations and bring them to church on the first weekend of the month.
Suggestions of healthy food items and things most needed are written on the bags. However, it is okay to bring whatever you have available and to use any bags you have. All donations are welcome.
If you don’t have anything to spare or prefer monetary donations, they can be placed in the small baskets in front at the altar as well. Half of these moneys are distributed to the designated food pantry and half to our own St. Vincent DePaul Society helping folks in our immediate area. So, thank you for your donations in whatever form they come.
