Volunteer power

You know the old saying, “If you want something done, ask a busy person?”  Well, Our Lady's Pantry is populated by dozens of busy persons, who somehow squeeze in a few hours a week to help provide food relief for our neighbors.

“The most active among our members have the greatest demands on their time,” says Tom Bullaro, co-director of the Pantry, along with his wife Anita.

“Many are active in Church, Synagogue, and community activities, including other pantries and the Emergency Medical Squad.  Some are still employed.  Some are raising children.  Some are raising grandchildren.  Some are caregiving and chauffeuring aged parents and neighbors in need.  We are a pretty interesting group, all things considered,” he says.

Men and women volunteers on either side of a trolley packing boxes of food.

It takes many hands working together to pack 50 pounds of food for our families on Saturday mornings.

Are you busy too?  You would fit right into our family of busy persons.  Why don't you join us on Tuesday, Friday, or Saturday mornings?  Thanks in advance for your help.

We are located in front of the classroom building at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Migrant Mission; 16650 U.S. Highway 301, South; Wimauma.  For more information please visit us at: www.OurLadysPantry.com
