Catholic Parish Outreach is a food pantry and supplier of children’s clothes (up to size 4). Volunteers help in the warehouse, sort food and pack orders, sort and distribute clothing, interview clients, and greet clients.
Volunteers help 9:30am to 1:30pm, Monday to Friday. You can volunteer one day a month or as often as you are able. Did you know that in November we gave a week’s worth of groceries to a record 11,600 people?
ST RAPHAEL FOOD DRIVES
Each year, St. Raphael has two Food Drives, one in the fall and one in the spring when parishioners have the opportunity to donate non-perishable food items and/or cash donations to support the work of Catholic Parish Outreach. Give of your surplus to help others. No time to shop? Make out a check payable to CPO.
St. Raphael’s October“Feed-A-Family” food drive was a huge success. Our parish donated 3,604 pounds of groceries and $4,122 for families in need. Thank you to all the parishioners who so generously donated and to those who volunteered before and after the Masses to make this drive a success. Special thanks to the scouts from Troop 314 and volunteers from our school.
GROCERY BAGS NEEDED
Catholic Parish Outreach is in need of plastic and paper grocery bags. Please save your gently used bags and bring them to the collection bin on the first floor lobby area of the Parish Center.
