A non-traditional Thanksgiving Food Drive

According to Feeding Tampa Bay, low-income households are still feeling the hardship caused by the coronavirus, having to choose between basic needs like rent, mortgage, healthcare, and putting meals on their table.  Our Lady’s Pantry wants to continue relieving the worry about the source of one’s next meal.  Can you help?

“With the many restrictions upon us this year because of the virus, and less traffic in local club houses to collect food, we are hopeful that a less traditional food drive for 2020 may be successful,” says director Tom Bullaro.

“If you have nutritious non-perishable foods you would like to share with our neighbors this year, you may bring these foods directly to the Pantry,” he says.  “Please only do this on Tuesday and Friday mornings between 8 a.m. – 10 a.m.  We shall already be here, unloading our trucks and stocking our shelves for Saturday morning.  You need not get out of your car.  Someone here will be happy to take your donation.”

Our Lady’s Pantry is located in front of the classroom building on the far right-hand corner of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Migrant Mission Campus, just south of Sun City Center Blvd. on U.S. 301 South in Wimauma.

You may also mail donations to Our Lady’s Pantry at: 16650 U.S. Highway 301 South; Wimauma, Fl. 33598.

Another way to make a difference is by joining our Pantry family of volunteers.  We almost always need more helping hands on Tuesday, Friday, or Saturday mornings.  Please ask for Anita or Tom, if you come.

“Thank you for helping us to help our neighbors in this time of hardship,” says Bullaro.
