Thank you to SMM parishioners for your overwhelming generosity in donating food for our pantry collections. We support 4 agencies, including the Farmworkers of Apopka, that in total serve thousands of people in need.
Undoubtedly, you have experienced some sticker-shock when you’ve gone grocery shopping in the last year. Imagine the difficulty for a family on a limited income as they watch prices go up on a frequent basis.
We are receiving regular calls from the pantries we serve, and from other agencies asking for food, as they are running out.
If everyone just picked up 1 or 2 extra items on your shopping trips and leave them in the parish hall when you come to Mass, we would not only be able to continue, but to expand our outreach to those in need.
If you are a regular donor – thank you, thank you, thank you. Your support is helping tremendously. If not, just one can of soup, box of rice, bag of tortillas or jar of peanut butter or pasta sauce would make a difference in someone’s life.
