FEEDING THE HUNGRY
FOOD BANK VOLUNTEERS
Parish volunteer group trips to the Northern Illinois Food Bank are planned a few times per year. Generally this means food sorting and packing. Every hour of assistance helps ensure that our hungry neighbors will have access to food in their time of need. Children ages 8 and older can volunteer with families or in groups with adult chaperones. If you would like to volunteer, please check the bulletin for the sign up dates. Signup sheets are placed in the narthex. For more information, contact our Food Bank Volunteer Coordinator, Terry Bode at email@example.com.
SUPPORTING YORK TOWNSHIP FOOD PANTRY
St. John the Apostle Parish will be accepting food donations to benefit the York Township Food Pantry which relies on community and in-kind donations. If you would like to donate, please check the list of food items for the month and the collection dates! A cart will be placed in the narthex. Thank you for your generosity!
FOOD OUTREACH / HOLIDAY MEALS PROGRAM
Please consider contributing to our annual Food Outreach/Holiday Meals Program which provides Thanksgiving and/or Christmas meals to our parishioners and neighbors who are struggling to make ends meet. In late October, donation envelopes will be placed in the pews and in the narthex. Just place your donation envelope in the collection basket at Mass or drop it off at the parish office.
EMERGENCY FOOD ASSISTANCE
Emergency food assistance is available to our parish families whenever the need arises. Please contact the parish office or Deacon Ron at 630-279-7433 to discuss your immediate needs.
