What’s wrong with this picture? Oops— the wagon is empty!
During November and December, Katie Higgins and Julie Schmidt would appreciate your help filling it on Sunday mornings with canned fruit for the Clinton Food Pantry so that its clients can supplement their meals with colorful and healthful items. While you’re at it, if you earn a free Thanksgiving turkey, ham or lasagna at ShopRite in Clinton and don’t plan to use it, were you aware that you can sign it over to the pantry? The cashiers can help you and will arrange delivery. If there are too many to use at Thanksgiving, ShopRite holds them over for Christmas, when they don’t offer the same promotion to the rest of us.
Please do not leave any donations in the Parish Office/Undercroft. Please put them in the Food Pantry Cart in the Narthex
The food pantry website lists the following needs:
Our food collection gift suggestions also include ShopRite gift cards (Your donation of gift cards enables us to purchase perishable items such as Meat, Fish, Milk, Eggs, Cheese). Alternately, the Pantry can use CANNED SOUP: Chicken Broth, Vegetable, Lentil, Pea, Beef; CANNED FRUIT: Peaches, Pears, Oranges & Pineapple; CANNED VEGGIES: Spinach, Potatoes, Black Beans & Carrots; Baked Beans; Coffee; Sugar; 100% Apple Juice; Plain Crackers (e.g., Ritz, Saltines, etc.) or you can access the pantry’s website: http://opencupboardfoodpantry.org/.
