* June Food Drive
Our monthly food drive takes place this weekend, June 18-19th and is designated for St. Christine's Outreach. They are in need of food items such as soups, boxed meals, tuna, peanut butter and jelly, canned pasta meals, individual snacks, and cereal. Remember that many students who received free meals through schools will be home for the summer and those families will struggle to feed their children. Brown paper grocery bags are also welcome for use in packing groceries. Monetary donations help support the pantry as well. Please do not donate food past it's expiration date and do not leave food outside the Church doors. Thank you!
