Other ways to donate!!!
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. It is a wonderful way to give thanks for our abundance.
Gift cards may be purchased by sending an e-mail with the subject, “gift card” to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

Community coming together helping families in need
How do you say thank you in many ways for so much? Thanks that it didn't rain this past Saturday morning. Thanks for the abundance of coats and winter apparel that was received and distributed. Thanks to all who contributed. Thanks to the volunteers who sorted, organized and were there on Saturday with helping hands. So many of our neighbors of all ages will be a little warmer this winter because of all of you.
Bloomin' 4 Good
Look for the $10.99 Bloomin' 4 Good Bouquet with the red circle sticker (pictured above). Every bouquet of flowers is unique and different. The red circle sticker is how you can tell that it is the Bloomin' 4 Good Bouquet benefiting The Community Food Pantry at St. Mary’s Mohegan Lake.

Many thanks to all the helping hands that made the pantry Christmas Distribution a success! Whether you donated food or a toy or sent monies for us to use or maybe you even packed a food bag or a toy bag, it all happened because we worked together. 259 families received a turkey or a ham and all the fixings for albeit a quiet but sumptuous feast. The evening before food distribution, toys were distributed to 465 children. So with your support, maybe we were able to bring some comfort and joy to the many who come to pantry door.
Let us hope that this New Year brings some peace and some relief for us all.
Wishing each and every one you a year of good health and many shared moments of joy and wonder.
