weekly & monthly activities - food pantry and supply Sunday
Supply Sunday Continues
Supply Sunday takes place on the last Sunday of each month. We ask people to bring a certain item once a month to help keep the church supplied with basics like paper goods, plastic wrap and the like. This helps to stretch our budget and keep the church supplied with the necessities. For the month of November we are asking for Ziploc bags (other brands are acceptable) in quart and gallon sizes, as well as kitchen sponges.
The food pantry hours are held on Monday evenings (5-7pm). There are additional hours for Senior Citizens at 9 am on the following Wednesdays in November: 7th & 21st. Your donations can be left in the box in the foyer leading into the Parish Hall. To find out what items are needed for the food pantry, or to arrange another time to access the food pantry, please talk with Joan Soucy (860) 208-3226.
Food Pantry needs for the month are:
Nov. 4 canned meat and tuna Nov. 11 soap, shampoo, toothpaste, dish soap
Nov. 18 toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex Nov. 25 juice, canned fruits and vegetables
Pet Food is always appreciated.
The Mobile Foodshare Van continues to come every other Wednesday with fresh produce and other grocery items for everyone, regardless of income. They will be here from 9 – 9:30 am on Wednesdays November 14 and 28. Please bring your own bags.
- It's that time of the year, again, we are having our Holiday Fair, Saturday December 1, 2018, from 9:30AM to 2:30PM. Food will be available and there will be lots of hand crafted items. We have room for 7-8 crafters to rent space. Last year was a huge success due to all our volunteers, donations and talented friends.
