Last month we fed 148 families, feeding 449 people with 5 new families. We are so very grateful to everyone who keeps coming to our pantry week after week with a huge amount of food. If everyone who came for mass each week brought 1 can of food, this would be most helpful.

We are now getting into vacation season. Most people go away, so donations are usually down. If you could find it in your heart to help us feed our neighbors in need, this would be wonderful. When we give food to a new client, often they leave here with tears in their eyes. This truly warms our hearts here at the pan try. We all know we are doing God’s work and are very proud of our work. So, without your help we are nothing. A special prayer for all our donators is said every time we gather, and a special
prayer will be said for all who travel this time of the year. God bless you and
thank you again from all of us at the pantry. –Matt Kulczyk

Please continue to either drop off your food at the pantry on Mondays and Wednesdays between 10:30am till 2:00pm or bring them to church and leave them in the donation boxes/containers.
