Mother’s Cupboard Volunteering
If you’d really like to donate 3 hours (3:30 to 6:30 PM, Mondays through Saturdays) serving Mother’s Cupboard in November, let Jan Drum know and she’ll try to find a date that fits your schedule. To ensure that you’ll have fun doing it, find a friend or two to join you.

Outreach News:
Please remember to bring donations of canned corn for the week-end backpack program, noodles for St. Vincent DePaul, and peanut butter and canned goods for Mother’s Cupboard.

  • Produce Pop-up Pantry at St. David’s will continue on Thursdays from 3PM to 5PM.
