St. Patrick's parishioners routinely help provide for families who are struggling financially at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter providing holiday meals, Christmas gifts and Easter baskets. Unfortunately, economic hardship is a year-round phenomenon. Our Parish Outreach food pantry is currently in great need of donations.
Our pantry is currently in dire need of all food items, especially chunky soup, mayonnaise, jarred tomato sauce, canned fruit, juice, canned pasta, canned meat, cereal, rice, instant potatoes, tuna, canned vegetables, cooking oil, and coffee/tea.
Also needed are paper goods, toiletry items, laundry detergent, and size 5 and 6 diapers. These are items that cannot be purchased with food stamps. If your garden is producing more vegetables than you can use, please keep our food pantry in mind. Fresh vegetables are a welcome addition on the tables of those in need and may be dropped off at our Parish Outreach Office.
The pantry also includes refrigerator and freezer space. Milk, eggs, frozen meats are all accepted. These items are like gold to the people we assist. Please try to drop off foods that need refrigeration during Parish Outreach office hours, between 9:30am-3:00pm, Mon-Fri. Please check expiration dates on all donated items.
Thank you for your generosity!
Whoever has compassion on the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his good deed.
- Proverbs 19:17
