We are just so overwhelmed with new clients right now. We are having to cut back on so many items and possibly meat in the very near future. Please note, we are planning a food drive at St Maria Goretti on Saturday, August 20th from 10 am till 2 pm with our needs with our current list. However, we can actually use everything. Thank you so very much for all your help.
Last month alone we fed 62 families, 160 people. We are spending $1,000 per week on food. On top of the amount of people we have fed, we have paid $1450.00 in rent, auto repair, $1350.00 and appliances, $445.00. Please help us if you can. Also, please don’t forget double donation day at Meijer on August 13th . Thank you all for your help. May our Dear Lord continue to bless you and yours. He has been wonderful to us here at the pantry.
