Each year during the Lenten season our parish has collected food to help keep the shelves of the Grove City Food Pantry filled. The collection has been designated as “Feed the Poor.” Paper bags with a list of needed items attached will be available in the Gathering Space beginning on Ash Wednesday, February 17. The food collection will end on Palm Sunday, March 28.
The following items are needed by the pantry at this time.
- 4 Tuna Helper
- 1 Box Mashed Potatoes
- 1 Box Scalloped Potatoes
- 2 Corn Muffin Mix
- 2 Stuffing Mix
- 2 Cans of Chili (15 oz.)
- 1 Can of Pineapple (20 oz.)
- 1 Can of Fruit – your choice – (15 oz.)
- 1 Box of Instant Rice
- 1 Deodorant
Some items may be on sale. You may fill as many bags as you wish or you may purchase only a portion of the items on the list. All donations are appreciated. You may return the filled bags to the Parish Life Center for pick-up by Food Pantry personnel.
If you would rather make a monetary donation, you may write a check payable to the Grove City Food Pantry/Emergency Fund and place it in an envelope marked “Grove City Food Pantry” and put in the collection boxes at the entrances to the Nave or send it to the parish office. You can also contribute on-line via REALM. In many instances the pantry can purchase food items at reduced prices so monetary donations are quite beneficial.
Anyone (even those without a REALM account) may use the link below to donate online—simply choose “Grove City Pantry” as the Fund.
We hope that our parish families will make this a Lenten project. Let us also continue to pray for those who receive these donations.
