Note 11/6/16: My apologies for a misprint in your IOP Program Brochure. It should read St. Paul’s Outreach instead of St. Vincent DePaul. I failed to catch the mistake before the brochure went to press.   ~Darrel Chaney

Saint Paul’s Outreach/Mobile Food Pantry consists of parish members who are a people committed to Christ’s saying, “Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.” We have a Mobile Food Pantry eleven times a year at which we give away approximately 10,000 pounds of food to families and individuals in need.  We have a brown bag collection on a monthly basis, which provides food to the local White County Food Pantry, along with a monthly monetary donation. We work with the Department of Family and Children Services at Thanksgiving and Christmas to provide dinners. We also work with DFACS at Christmas when we sponsor a “Jesse Tree” that provides children with toys and clothing. All year round, we offer monetary help to individuals and families with emergency needs.  All these things we do require a lot of help and caring hands. Please join us in this work and you will lay up treasures in heaven.

Volunteers are needed to help with the Mobile Food Pantry on the last Thursday of every month.  Please contact Bob Myers at the above number if you candonate a few hours a month.
