Wellesley Interfaith Food Drive
Over the past eighteen months, the Wellesley Food Pantry has seen a significant increase in the demand for their services. More than 200 families are in need of their help. Starting Sunday February 28th, in a town wide effort to support the Food Pantry, twelve Houses of Worship in Wellesley will be collecting designated Food items for the Wellesley Food Pantry.
The Interfaith Food Drive will take place over a four week period. St. Mary’s has been asked to collect only vegetable oil and mayonnaise or Roche Brothers $10.00 gift certificates. The Food Pantry has identified certain products for each House of Worship in order to best meet the needs of their clients over the next few months.
We ask that you bring your vegetable oil and mayonnaise to service with you on Sunday February 28, March 7th, 14th, and 21st. Please leave your donations in the collection boxes available in the Narthex.
Then on Saturday March 27th, all the Houses of Worship will bring their collections to the Assembly Room at the Wellesley Hills Congregational Church and celebrate the abundance of gifts for the Food Pantry.
We will also need volunteers from each House of Worship to help with separating and putting the food away in the Pantry on Saturday the 27. If you would like to help, please contact Elisabeth Comer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have so much to be thankful for and we know….that it is better to give than to receive. Thank you so much for helping in this wonderful Interfaith effort.
