Our April food collection is coming up on the weekend of April 4 & 5. This time of year our food cupboard is in great need of the following items:
Non-Food Needs: paper towels; liquid hand soap; body wash; laundry detergent
Food Needs: plain rice; pastas (all varieties); canned beans (all varieties EXCEPT green beans); canned meats; coffee; sugar and honey; cold cereals; granola bars; canned fruits; individual juice packs; jams and jellies; salad dressings
Also, we need your help by NOT giving us:
Baby items – Catholic Social Services in Norristown can really use them!
Outdated or opened food items – we cannot give these out and we must then dispose of it & the local bird sanctuary no longer takes them!
Over-sized products or packages – we find they are not taken and remain on our shelves;
Any sugared items where healthier substitutes are available: cereals, snacks, etc.;
Prepared rice – people seem to prefer plain rice as the prepared rice boxes remain on our shelves;
Thank you again in advance, for your wonderful generosity! May God bless you and your families especially during the Easter Season for your on-going support to the needy in our Lansdale community.
