Canned Food Collections

Parishioners of all ages may participate in this ministry by providing non-perishable food items for the Church of the Transfiguration St. Vincent de Paul Society each week when coming to Mass. Volunteers help move the items from the hunger baskets in the vestibules to the storage closet each week, and other volunteers serve on a rotating basis to transport the food to the pantry.

Donations to the food pantry are a regular Christian Service project for our school children, too, who assist with all aspects of this ministry.

In addition to the weekly collections, the parish also supports seasonal food drives, such as supplies for Angels’ Place and┬áthe annual Thanksgiving Food Collection for St. Leo’s. Volunteers are always needed to assist with sorting, packing, and deliveries.
