The St. Mary’s St. Vincent de Paul Society will be holding the August food drive throughout the month of August.
We are so grateful for every item that is donated to our SVdP food pantry week after week. Because of these donations, we are able to pack up many bags of food and offer them to our neighbors in need. For our August food drive, we are requesting juice, juice boxes, pasta sauce, canned soup, fruit, fruit cups, applesauce, crackers, (Ritz, saltines, wheat thins, graham crackers), tissues, shampoo, conditioner and single toothbrushes.
Donations may be dropped off in the boxes near the prayer wall at the front of the church throughout the month. All your food donations go right back into the community to help our neighbors who, in their hour of need, turn to St. Mary’s. Recently we delivered bags of food to a person who had been evicted. He was so grateful and said, “You have filled my heart.”
Through your donations to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul you also give “God’s mercy to your neighbor who is hungry, hopeless, alone and frightened.”
Thank you for helping us to work together to make a difference in our parish and community!
