Our October Collection will be on the weekend of October 1 & 2. And at this time, our food cupboard is in great need of the following items:
Non-Food Needs: 1000-sheet toilet tissue, laundry detergent; liquid hand soap, facial tissues, tooth paste, razor blades, paper towels
Food Needs: plain white rice, canned meat & fish; individual juice boxes; canned fruit; coffee & tea; sugar and honey; snack bars, crackers, low-sugar jelly and jam; tomato paste
Also, we remember that we are unable to use the following:
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Outdated or opened food items – we cannot give these out and we must then dispose of it & the local bird sanctuary no longer takes them!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: juices, jams, cereals, snacks, etc.;
Prepared rice – people seem to prefer plain rice as the prepared rice boxes remain on our shelves
Thank you 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
