Our congregation makes a difference in the lives of more than 50 students at the Holy Family Institute Specialized Learning school. Each week, the students take home a bag of food to supplement what's available at home. The school's principal, Ron Zangaro, has shared the gratitude of the students and the enthusiasm of the staff for this program.
This food is provided by generous donations from members of the church. Last Saturday, November 4, the program was expanded from collections at Sam's Club at Mt. Nebo Pointe. Kate Colville, Alice Nadin, and Deb Sadowski talked with shoppers about the program, asking for monetary or food donations. A total of more than $325 and dozens of food items that overflowed four carts (and filled an SUV!) were collected.
We will continue providing food to students each week through late May. Thank you to all whose generosity allows us to show these students that we care.
