For the latest updates and events be sure to friend us on Facebook:
The Food Pantry’s Thanksgiving distribution will be on Saturday, November 18, 2017, 8:30 am to 11:00. We will be setting up on Friday, November 17, 2017, starting at about 3:00.
We wish to give our guests the provisions for a bountiful feast and we will need help. Food and/or monetary contributions are needed and greatly appreciated. Volunteers are welcome. However, the evening of the set-up can be rather hectic. So, we do ask that children under 13 years of age not participate in the set-up. We love our youth volunteers and want to make sure their safety comes first.
Donations may be dropped off at the during church office hours Tuesday through Friday between the hours of 9:30 am and 2: 00 pm, Saturday mornings between 8 am and 11 am and the day of the set-up. For more information either call 528-3972 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org .

In addition we also offer an opportunity to donate through holiday/all occasion greeting cards. The holiday gift cards work this way: A donor sends/gives a beautiful “occasion” card to the chosen recipient, fills out the receipt slip and mails the donation and the slip back to St. Mary’s. The donated money all goes directly to the cost of operating the pantry and the recipient of the card has the pleasure of knowing that a bag of groceries went to a needy family in their name.
The cards are a wonderful and thoughtful gift for those hard to buy for folks on your list and are greatly appreciated by those that receive them. They make thoughtful teacher gifts or maybe a gift for that after school instructor or the sitter. The sympathy cards bring comfort to a family that has lost a loved one.
Gift cards may be purchased by sending an e-mail with the subject, “gift card” to email@example.com or through the website at www.cfpstmarysmoheganlake.com. Cards are $20 each or 3 for $50. All proceeds benefit the pantry. We will mail you the cards, so include mailing address. Cards may also be purchased and picked up at the church office during office hours Tuesday through Friday, 9:30 am to 2 pm.
The pantry is now registered with Amazon Smile. If you shop on-line and use Amazonsmile.amazon.com and name the pantry as your charity of choice 5% of your purchase will go to the pantry. So shop away and make a difference.
