The St. Francis Food Pantry has remained open and serving clients throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic these past two years. Volunteers have stepped up to fill the void for those who were unable to serve. Now that we are in recovery mode from the pandemic, it is time to replenish our volunteers in a variety of areas.
Isn’t Lent a great time to commit to serving others less fortunate?
The food pantry could use help in the following areas:
*An extra phone volunteer (takes calls from clients to schedule pick up or delivery). This can be done at home at your convenience.
*A driver who has a pickup truck that will deliver a donated order once a month on a Monday morning.
*Someone willing to do inventory, order, and accept a grocery delivery each month. This can be done as your schedule allows.
*Volunteers willing to bring groceries to the pantry after weekend Masses.
*Helpers who are available every other Wednesday at Noon to receive a Hy-Vee damaged container delivery.
*Volunteers who can join Monday morning stockers each week and help with the Midwest Food Bank Delivery once a month on Monday.
*Individuals and families that want to help at Horizons Soup Kitchen on Sunday, April 10, for the evening meal and the last Tuesday of each month for a Noon meal.
Email [email protected] or call Mary Beth McGee (217-430-1533) to join us for one of these times, or stop into the Food Pantry (Parish Center Basement) this coming Monday at 8:30 a.m. to help stock and learn more about these opportunities to serve others.
