Food Drive for Neighbor-to-Neighbor Continues

Parish members deliver food and essentials to Neighbor to Neighbor.

The Social Justice Committee of the Parish of St. Catherine of Siena and St. Agnes is continuing to help Neighbor to Neighbor by collecting food and other living essentials in a no-contact format.

Until further notice, there will be a car or SUV with an open trunk in the parking lot across from St. Catherine’s church on Tuesdays from 9 to 11 a.m. Please drop your bagged grocery donations in the trunk, and volunteers will take them to Neighbor to Neighbor.

Residents are answering the needs of neighbors. Last the Parish delivered 5 trunks and back seats full of food and essentials.

Neighbor-to-Neighbor delivers to 700 households each week. Food items needed include: Peanut butter and jelly, oatmeal, canned meats (chicken, chili, Vienna sausages, Chef Boyardi Ravioli), tuna, canned fruit, black or red kidney beans (dried or canned), cereal, rice, soup. Non-food items needed (which cannot be purchased with food stamps): Brown paper grocery bags, toiletries, toilet paper, paper towels, sanitary products, cleaning products, etc.
