A take out Christmas dinner was held on Sunday, December 12. We served 325 guests, 125 walk-ups and 200 deliveries. Although unable to socialize at a sit down meal, all of our guests expressed their gratitude and a hope for a more normal meal next year.

We would like thank the following sponsors for our Christmas turkey dinner:

This year 34 Christmas hampers were delivered, assisting 68 people. Messages have been received from our clients both in person and on our answering machine thanking us for helping to make their Christmas more enjoyable.

 

~A sincere thank you to our parishioners for their donations.~

At the beginning of the school year 25 back packs with school supplies were provided to families in our area.

 

This year home visits have been between 30 and 40 per month. These are singles and families of up to five people.

Grocery Bags: We are beginning to use up our supply of plastic bags for our food deliveries. We are looking for donations of bags from grocery, dept/clothing stores etc. These can be plastic or paper. Various sizes are useful; including newspaper and flyer bags.

​We also accept financial donations to support individuals struggling with rent and utilities.
