Monthly food collection to support The Merton Center – Sunday, July 19 to Wednesday July 22
Merton Center Collection
Demand for the Merton Center’s food resources continues unabated during the Covid19 crisis. Since the dining hall is closed during the pandemic, every weekday the Center distributes hundreds of mealstogo (breakfast and lunch) and the food pantry is open every other Wednesday. From Sunday, July 19 to Wednesday July 22 we will have our monthly food collection to support this ministry, The staff at the Center alerted us to current needs including:
- bottled water
- individual size apple sauce
- snacks such as cereal/granola/power bars
- rice krispie treats
- small packets of cookies, etc.
The items are added to the mealstogo that are distributed at the door of the Center. Our parish collection point is the back porch of the rectory where baskets will be provided from the 19th to the 22nd. Thank you for your always generous response!
