Donations Needed

We have changed the way we work, but are not closed for business!!!!  The elderly, homeless and poor are in greater need for help now more than ever.  The lack of church services and restrictions on quantity consumer purchasing is greatly impacting donations for the shelters and food pantries.

The Winter Park Food Pantry at Christian Service Center provided over 600 emergency meals last month as our country generated hundreds of thousands of new jobs.  Last week over 3 million people filed for unemployment.  Low income and hourly wage people were most impacted and we need you help!

This week at Publix, the following items are BOGO.  Please consider picking up a pair of the following items as you shop:

  • General Mills cereal (Cheerios)
  • Mott’s Applesauce, individual containers
  • Capri Sun Juice Pouches
  • Ritz crackers
  • Nabisco single serving crackers

Also, donations of individual fruit cups, Vienna sausages, pop-top cans of pasta and pop-top or pouches of chicken or tuna are needed.

All donations can be safely left outside the parish hall, in or near the blue bins located between the main parish hall doors and the parish office door.

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’

Then the righteous will answer him and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?

When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?

When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’

And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.”
