The Food Pantry’s Thanksgiving distribution will be on Saturday, November 21, 2020, 8:30 am to 11:00. We will be accepting donations up until Friday, November 20, 2020. Donations may be dropped off at the church any day. There is a box outside the parish hall for donations. It is checked regularly. Donations are also accepted on Saturday mornings between 8 am and 11 am. For more information either call (914) 528-3972 or e-mail us at email@example.com
The pantry is following CDC regulations for the safety of our volunteers and for the safety of those we serve, volunteering opportunities are restricted to known volunteers and cannot be open opportunity. Distribution will be different, but we still 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.
The pantry is hopeful that next year we will see a return to a time when all are welcome to come and serve.

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 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.
