Monthly Project Hunger collections at Our Lady of Guadalupe and Prince of Peace have enabled Our Lady’s Pantry to provide nutritious food for the underserved among our neighbors for many years. Because of the corona virus, however, our Churches were forced to close for several months. As a result, the last Project Hunger collection took place in early March.
“Our Churches are now open and we are delighted to resume our monthly Project Hunger collections before Mass at Our Lady of Guadalupe,” says Pantry director Tom Bullaro.
“These collections are our lifeline,” he adds. “Looking back, the Pantry was able to stay open in recent months only because of the countless individuals and couples who have mailed generous checks to the Pantry — some of them stimulus checks! This has made all the difference. Piggybacking on the kindness of local food markets in sharing their surplus with us, we are thriving, with plenty food to share with our clients on Saturday mornings (7:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.).
If you wish to help fill Pantry shelves with food, kindly make your check payable to Our Lady’s Pantry and mail it to Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Migrant Mission; 16650 U.S. Highway 301 South; Wimauma, Fl. 33598.
“And thanks so much!”
