St. Teresa’s Outreach Food and Supply Donations

New Options to Help Effective July 4, 2020

Inspired by the Holy Spirit, your generosity has allowed our parish’s food collections to grow tremendously since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Thankfully, we have been able to meet the substantially increased demand, which will undoubtedly continue in the wake of the economic and social repercussions of the pandemic.

Drive-up Food Donations moving from Sunday to Monday:

The food drops were a true life-line during the pandemic shutdown and we are very grateful for your generosity.  Participation has declined to 3-5 cars per weekend since the Church reopened, but we want to continue to provide an option for those who do not feel comfortable entering the building.  Drive-up food donations will move to Monday mornings from 10:00 a.m.-10:30 a.m. beginning Monday July 6.  Please drive your car to the bell tower and someone will be there to take food and supplies from you car.

We will also continue to accept food in the narthex when you come in for Mass, Adoration, or anytime during weekly business hours.  Please use the box marked “Food Pantry” in front of the St. Joan of Arc relief  You may also mail a check to:  St. Joan of Arc, ATTN: STO, 10700 Liberty Road South, Powell, OH 43065. Please write “St Teresa’s Outreach” in the memo line.  We can also take donations through the Online Giving portal of the PARISH WEBSITE and choosing “STO.”
