JANUARY FREE LUNCH

 One hundred twenty-five meals were provided on Saturday, January 20. We are so grateful to the volunteers who help set up and clean up, who help prep and serve the meals, and who deliver meals to the homeless and homebound. We would not be able to offer the quality of food if it were not for the generous donations of Cub Foods and the members of St Joseph and St Mary churches. If we do have any food left, which is very seldom, we donate it to the Sleezer Home for Youth. Your service and donations of food, clothing, and toiletries make a difference in so many lives in our community. God Bless all of you and we ask that you continue to pray for those we serve. ~The Society of St Vincent de Paul.
