Food Bag distribution by Knights Council 5476:
Commonwealth Catholic Charities Food Pantry Drive –
In February you donated 119 bags of groceries which helped to feed 403 adults, 278 children, and 13 elderly neighbors. The need for food is greater than it has been in a long time, and our needy friends and neighbors are facing heavy decisions- how can they feed their family with the escalating costs of rent and utilities.
Food pantries across Richmond are having severe problems, but thanks to your continued support of this ministry, Catholic Charities has been able to continue assisting needy families with food.
Our next food drive will be the weekend of April 13th. Volunteers and the Knights of Columbus will be handing out empty grocery bags after all masses. Please do not pass them by. Take a bag home and return it the next weekend. As we remember Palm Sunday, let us also remember those less fortunate then ourselves.
