Our Outreach Office was open 134 days in 2019. Over 35 volunteers, assisted 1,072 families; 3,060 family members. We gave out 5,292 SMA bags and 1,421 Federal bags
We helped feed 50 families over the holidays with turkey/fixings. We collaborated with other churches, NE Rotary Club, Tome School, Boy Scouts/Cub Scouts, NE Elementary School, and Port House Grill.
Thank you to everyone who made this possible!
Our Outreach Food Pantry worked this week to make 44 local family Thanksgiving dinner tables a little more plentiful. They gave out 44 turkeys along with bags filled to the brim with potatoes, cranberry sauce, stuffing mix, veggies, and desserts.Once again, our Outreach Office, parishioners, and food providers, collaborated to help our neighbors. For that blessing, we are most thankful.
