SSVP, St Mary’s Conference is in constant need of nonperishable food item and toiletry donations to supplement local Food Bank provisions for the food hampers our parish distributes. To replenish our cupboards when Food Bank provisions fall short of the growing demand, your food and toiletry donations can be placed in the basket marked SSVP outside the doors to the church hall. Grocery store gift cards, for perishable items for our clients, continue to be funded from generous monthly monetary donations. All donations are greatly appreciated and distributed with great care. Currently, we are in need of canned food (meat, fish, pasta, soup, vegetables and fruit); as well as, toiletries (bar soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and deodorant) and toilet paper. Thank you!
