Food Pantry Helpers help stock shelves, portion donated food, shop for perishables and pack bags of food which are given or delivered to those in need. They serve all the people of our community regardless of race, creed, or ethnic background.

Thrift Shop Workers provide clothing to families in need. Volunteers sort and steam the shop’s inventory, and staff the shop. We provide gently used clothing at reasonable prices as a way of helping our parish family.
