The Parish Life Committee will be collecting food donations again this year for our local Food Bank. Donations will be accepted from November 1st through December 12th. The Food Bank assembles food baskets for those in need to distribute before the Christmas holiday. Special items in the basket include nonperishable dessert mixes, instant potatoes, gravy mixes, cranberry sauce and juices, and other items. The Food Bank itself is also in need of any nonperishable food items that are not "out of date." Specially marked bins will be placed at the front and back entrances of the church. Parish Life will also be providing specially marked envelopes in which monetary donations may be placed. The Food Bank uses this money to purchase meat vouchers for the needy. The envelopes can be placed in the collection baskets during Mass and will be delivered to the Food Bank by December 12th.
