HOLIDAY DISTRIBUTION


Community coming together helping families in need

Bishop Michael Curry has said that Thanksgiving is composed of two words, thanks and giving. Thanks to all for their abundant giving to the pantry. With your help 294 families received a turkey and all the fixings for a bountiful meal to share with their loved ones.

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.
