Food Pantry Collection

St Elizabeth was able to send a nice group of items for our kick-off donation to the Pantry.  The Westchester Food Pantry expressed appreciation for all the items you collected!  Thank you for all the participation!

Please note, the Pantry distributes items to 40+ families every two weeks and needs to split things as equally as they are able.   For this reason, very large or bulk items are not easily usable by the pantry.

Bring your items to church anytime and place in the basket in the coat room.

Currently the Pantry has an overabundance of the following items, so take these off your list until further notice: bar soap, toothpaste, canned green beans, canned corn.
