A great big THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to our two summer collections for FISH. In June and July we collected items for the Kid’s Summer Lunch Program which helped families who had children who normally would receive subsidized lunches during the school year. In the summer, the kid’s are home or at other caregivers and need lunches which add to the food needs each work. St. Paul’s collected 206.1 pounds of food that was designated for the extra bags given to those families in need. Awesome job! Then in August we participated in gathering School Supplies and Backpacks that are distributed out to FISH families prior to the start of school. My car’s trunk was packed! I can always count on our members to come through with these collections and show how it is better to give than to receive. Another terrific job!!
