We are well into this new year of 2022 and we have been extremely busy ever since we opened on January 3rd . As a matter of fact, we had 22 families the first week and 36 families the second week. Needless to say, the food is FLYING out the door as quickly as we get it in. Our back up food has dwindled down to almost nothing. If you can find it in your heart and wallet to help us continue to help our neighbors in need it would truly make life a bit easier on all of us here at the pantry.

So, we are holding a food drive here at St. Maria Goretti Parish, formerly St. Sebastian’s on Saturday, February 12th from 11:00 am till 2:00 pm at the pantry. Our address is 20710 Colgate in Dearborn Heights. We are in need of everything! Canned vegetables, fruit, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, spaghetti and sauce. Basically all your staple items. When we have this amount of people come through our shelves are wiped out. If you are unable to go and purchase food won’t you please consider monetary donations so we can purchase items for those in need.

This is our first time we have ever had a food drive. Please help us make this a successful drive. God bless each and everyone of you and please keep us all in your prayers. Times are tough. Let’s help those in need have food on their tables.
