Poverty In Our Community

Poverty In Our Community: Coffee And Conversation Panel

Sunday, March 31st 10:45 AM, Parish Hall

Our Catholic Social Teaching theme for March is “the option for the poor and vulnerable.” When we donate food for the food pantry where does it go?  Come for coffee, snacks, & discussion with the case manager from the Christian Service Center, parish volunteers to the center & a representative from the Winter Park housing authority to learn more about  the face of poverty in our community, how local agencies help, & what you can do to help the poor in our neighborhoods.

A collection to aid families living in local motels will be taken; Please bring any of the following: personal hygiene items  (bar soap, deodorant, sanitary pads, toothpaste, disposable razors, washcloths; cleaning supplies (laundry detergent, bleach, dish liquid, all-purpose household cleaner, window/glass cleaner, paper towels; trash bags, laundry baskets); children's underwear & gently used clothing.
