To All Our Generous Donors at Christmas
Our Parish Social Ministry and Youth Ministry wish to thank our great donors. Once again, all you who contributed to our Christmas Giving Outreach Project were wonderfully generous. Following are numbers showing just how much help you provided for our needy brothers and sisters.
Number of children: 102, locally in Lansdale
Number of gifts given to Catholic Social Services: approximately 20 large bags, serving 170 families
Financial Donations to assist Parish Social Ministry throughout the year: $7,967
May God abundantly bless you for all you do!
With much gratitude,
Sister Barbara and Mrs. Peggy Dominick
Our February food collection will be on the weekend of January 31 & February 1. For this upcoming food cupboard we are in need of the following items:
Food Needs: plain rice, canned meat and fish, jars of applesauce, hearty low sodium soups, juice boxes & bottles, jam/jelly, sugar/honey, mayo, ketchup, mustard, coffee/tea, healthy cold cereals, canned beans.
Non-Food Needs: liquid laundry detergent, toilet tissue, paper towels, liquid hand soap, facial tissues, 3 in 1 body wash, toothpaste, deodorants, shampoos
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Outdated or opened food items – we cannot give these out and we must then dispose of it & the local bird sanctuary no longer takes them!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 for all that you do, as the Food Cupboard would not exist without your dedicated support and wonderful generosity! May God bless you and your families for your on-going support to the needy in our Lansdale community.
With gratitude, Sister Barbara
