Food For Their Table
Difficult times can come to friends even in the seemingly most affluent societies and an occasional helping hand can ease the difficulties faced by our friends. Saint Elizabeth’s Family Assistance Program administered by Father Joseph Prince and Deacon Frank Foyt will occasionally forward supermarket “food cards” to individuals or families, brought to their attention, who find themselves in difficult times.
The Outreach Committee is sponsoring a drive to collect gift cards for grocery stores to assist the confidential work of the Family Assistance Program. Gift cards will be collected at masses the weekend of October 19th. See the flyer for details...
