We are collecting perishable and non-perishable food for delivery to Cristo Rey, our sister parish in Trenton, sometime after Good Friday. Note the change. They are not ready for us.
There will be a special collection box/basket in the Narthex near the Red Wagon for non-perishable foods (canned or dry) anytime until Good Friday morning. PERISHABLE FOOD cannot be accepted!
We all are aware of rising prices everywhere. This is especially impactful when you live on low or limited income. In the Cristo Rey neighborhood there are no major grocery stores, only Mom and Pop’s, so shoppers were already paying higher prices for groceries before this current economic spike. Please be generous with your donations.
All of us are upset by what is happening in Ukraine, especially when we see some of the heart wrenching photos of children and families fleeing their homeland which is being overtaken by another country.
In Our Community: Ukraine Fundraiser
Hello CHS Members,
A friend of mine, Tracy Fink, has put together a list of much needed items for people in the Ukraine. She has partnered with Pandemic of Love and Global Empowerment Mission and created a wishlist on Amazon based on their recommendations.
How it works: You buy from her wishlist link below and the items go to a Florida warehouse for processing and then onto Poland/Ukraine. Make sure you use the GEM/Doral FL (warehouse) shipping address. Please don't buy anything not specified on the list.
