THANKSGIVING

Looking for Volunteers

SUPERMARKET GIFT CARD COLLECTION

We are looking for volunteers to help with the bottles and cans drive on December 3rd from 811am. Please call the office (781-944-0330) to sign up. This would be a good time to get some community service hours.

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me… Despite improvements in the economy, there are still many struggling to find employment and to feed their families. The Reading Food Pantry continues to assist more local families than before the recession. Last year, Catholic Charities helped more than 4,500 families with emergency food and is seeing more need this year. Please donate Market Basket or Stop and Shop gift cards in denominations of $5 - $15 to assist families using the Reading Food Pantry and Catholic Charities’ services. A collection box is in the back of the church to accept donations for the next few weeks. Thank you!

Adult volunteers are needed also. There are lots and lots of bottles and cans and therefore lots of work to do and we need as many people as possible. Even if you can only come for some of the time, any help is greatly appreciated.

Family Mass Tuesday, November 22 at 6:30 pm Please bring $5 food gift card for the food pantry
