Update From May’s Event:
It was a beautiful Sunday with over 50 volunteers assembling and packing 16,600 meals of oatmeal in the two hours following Divine Liturgy. St. Mary’s volunteers even exceeded our goal by 1,600 meals. By the grace of God, it is a blessing for the food shelves. There are many asking for food as they run low or out of food after exhausting all other sources.
Many volunteers made comments of gratitude for the opportunity, “I wanted to give something back.” Or, “we always enjoy this event and the people that volunteer here.” Your efforts will help Joyce Uptown Food Shelf, CES (Community Emergency Services), Simpson House, FOCUS, and Every Meal (especially for their Summer Program to ensure children have food). As of June 15, all our meals are with food shelves. The food shelf staffs tell us “Our clients love to see these meals.”
