“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.” – Matthew 25:35-36
Serving others is one of the key guidelines in our Catholic faith and we can do so by helping others, especially during their times of need. Since there is never a moment when one can tell when hard times will hit, we are always there for local families to assist them during their struggles. The food pantry for the cluster is held at Mary Help of Christians Church and we are always accepting a wide array of donations. For food items we ask that they be non-perishable items for better storage, but we also accept other basic need items such as: toiletries, shampoo, conditioner, soap, laundry detergent and more.
We also accept donations which are contributed to a fund for the food pantry in order to purchase additional items that are needed, or in short supply. This aids the families that are receiving items to be sure they have supplies for their basic needs and that of their family.
The food pantry is open on Wednesdays from 10am-12pm and 1-3pm, or by appointment. Please contact the parish office at 419-375-4153 or stop by if there is ever a time the food pantry services can assist you or your family.
