St. Teresa’s Outreach Food and Supply Drop
New Options to Help Effective May 25, 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.
Now that the Church has reopened, St. Teresa’s Outreach offers three options for you to help:
Option 1: Drop off food in front of the St. Joan of Arc relief in the narthex when you come in for Mass, Adoration, or anytime during weekly business hours. Note that we have moved the drop off box away from the front door to allow for better traffic flow in and out of the building and to accommodate a larger amount of food.
Option 2: For those who do not feel comfortable coming into the building or would like to donate more food than you wish to carry, we will hold a food drop immediately following the 11:30 am Sunday Mass until 1:30 pm. The drop off point will be in the same location as the Men’s Club Easter and Thanksgiving food drives Please look for the tents.
Option 3: If you or anyone in your household is sick or you do not feel comfortable going out, please consider mailing a check to: St. Joan of Arc, 10700 Liberty Road South, Powell, OH 43065. Please write “St Teresa’s Outreach” in the memo line. These funds will be directed to our partner agencies and individuals on the basis of need.
