Now more than ever in these uncertain times, we need to come together as a church community to help others. Please prayerfully consider these opportunities:
UPDATED JUNE 4, 2021 – TOILETRY ITEMS NEEDED!
We will be distributing toiletry bags and deodorant to our guests. Deodorant is a hard-to-get item so it will be greatly appreciated by our guests. If you are able to donate a few sticks of deodorant (available for $1 each at the Dollar Tree), please leave them in the kitchen at Our Lady of the Fields or bring them to St. Vincent’s between 4:30 and 5 p.m. any Friday. If you can’t get deodorant before this Friday, don’t worry — we will be happy to distribute any that you can provide on another Friday!
For a few months now, we have been providing special bags of groceries each week to the food pantry at St. Vincent de Paul. These bags are distributed by the outreach staff at St. Vincent’s to people living unsheltered who come to the church seeking food. The food we provide is shelf-stable and has pull-tab tops for ease of use. The feedback we have received so far has been very positive. We currently find ourselves in need of a few food items for this project. Specifically, we need canned meals with pull-tab tops, such as beef stew/chili/soup/or Chef-Boy-Ar-Dee, and individual size boxes or cups of cereal. If you, or any of your friends or neighbors, can provide some of the needed food items or a monthly cash donation to cover the purchase of the food items, please sign up using this Sign-Up Genius link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0C44A9AF28ABFD0-food2
