The 6th grade class would like to invite parish members to help with the last service
project of the year. Our class will be taking donations of food during the Lenten Season
to give to Food for the Poor. The items that are needed most are nonperisable food
products such as; noodle, mac/cheese, and rice cups, pop top cans of ravioli, spaghetti,
pasta sauce, canned fruit, and etc, small boxes of pasta, pudding and fruit cups, shelf
stable milk, cereal, pancake mix made with water, small containers of syrup, and
breakfast bars. Healthy snacks are needed also. We encourage everyone to check the
grocery isles for good tasteing, healthy items that will satisfy a hungry student.
Donations can be placed in the book bags in the back of church. Our class is looking
forward to doing our part to help this service project be successful.
