The St. Vincent de Paul Society is providing 200 disadvantaged families with bags of
groceries to help them during this holiday. How can you help? All of the food needs to
be provided by food drives at our local parishes! So you can help by bringing nonperishable food items to the church from November 1st – 15th.
HERE IS WHAT IS NEEDED:
15 oz. cans of corn, green beans, & any other vegetables, also pumpkin & fruit; 29 oz.cans of sweet potatoes; 1 lb. bags of pinto beans & rice; 13-15 oz. box potato flakes; 12 oz. bag egg noodles; 7.25 oz. boxes of Mac & Cheese; 6 oz. box stuffing mix, 8 oz. cornbread pouches; small envelopes of dry gravy mix; any boxed dessert mix (with a can of frosting). You can also help by making a monetary donation to the St. Vincent de Paul Society, so that we can provide a grocery gift card for each family which enables the family to buy perishables like turkey, fruit, bread and eggs. Please mail your donation directly to St. Vincent de Paul of Bryan-College Station, 300 N. Main St., Bryan, TX 77803. Finally, you can also help by volunteering to sort food, bag it and/or deliver the groceries on November 15th and 16th. Please contact Lisa Hubacek at 979-229-0083 or Lisa.Hubacek@courts.state.tx.us to sign up and volunteer.
Please consider discerning if God is calling you to a more active role in recognizing the face of Christ in the Poor and to live out that call more deeply. Together we are the hands and feet of Jesus on earth!
