Important Announcement from our FOOD PANTRY
So far our Food Pantry has continued to operate on Tuesdays and Thursdays, thanks to our dedicated volunteers who wear gloves and masks. We have adapted our procedures so that people coming for food remain outside, orders are pre-packaged and brought out to a table or the entryway where people can just take them to their cars. We are doing our best to keep everyone safe yet also continuing to help those who need food. Besides providing food to people with vouchers from Community Care Alliance, we are also responding to calls that come into the parish office, some who have been referred by the State's 211 system.
We have seen recently unemployed people, elderly and families with children. In March we provided food to 79 households this included 93 adults, 26 seniors, and 60 children. Please pray that our volunteers stay healthy and we are able to continue this ministry.

Thanks to Friendly Home--Staff, Director, Activities Department and residents, for their recent fundraiser to benefit our Food Pantry. Over $400 was donated along with boxes of canned goods. This helped replenish our shelves and enables us to purchase items that we don't get through donations or can't purchase at the RI Food Bank. We appreciate the Friendly Home's continued support.
