  We've all seen the person sitting on the sidewalk or at the off ramp onto the highway, maybe you've seen them in the park holding that sign that says "HUNGRY" or “WILL WORK FOR FOOD”. But what if that person wasn't holding a sign, what if that person was your neighbor or best friend. What if you didn't know that the person whom you talk to everyday was hungry or struggling to make ends meet, or that the only meal that their child ate was the lunch served at school each day. During the holiday season, the need is great. Children are not in school and every family should be able to enjoy a sit-down meal on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Help us help them. Collection boxes located in the outreach room behind the sacristy.
