Brown Bag Lunches – First Fridays
As a way of living out two of the Corporal Works of Mercy this school year, we will be feeding the hungry and giving drink to the thirsty through our Brown Bag Lunch Fridays project. We are asking every family who is able to send in:
- a bologna, ham, or turkey sandwich with cheese and mustard (please no mayonnaise) OR a peanut butter and jelly sandwich
- a snack
- a bag of chips
- a piece of fruit
- Optional: A small note or prayer; no signature required
We will be doing this on the first Friday of each month. These lunches are distributed throughout the area to local homeless shelters, camps, and to others in great need. Please know that every lunch is needed and appreciated.
November 4, December 2, January 6, and February 3
HOPE FOR ALL
HOPE For All exists as a Christian ministry to assist God’s people without sufficient resources to provide for their own basic needs. Mr. Leo Zerhusen, founder of HOPE For All and former teacher at St. Philip Neri, and his wife Diane founded this charity in 2004. During more than 40 combined years of teaching experience, they saw how children lacking basic needs were at a disadvantage for finding a promising future. That awareness combined with a strong faith and years of Christian service resulted in their decision to establish HOPE For All. Phone number is 410-766-0372. hopeforall.us
Canned Goods for NCEON
Throughout the year we collected canned goods to help those less fortunate. All of these items are donated to the food pantry at the SPN Parish Outreach program. In addition, as a participating church and school at the Linthicum Community Fair, we collected canned goods for NCEON (North County Emergency Outreach Network).
Donation of Glasses
The SPN Families donated over 200 pairs of glasses that will be given to the homeless. This ongoing drive is in conjunction with the parish. The collection box is located in the North Lobby. This drive was headed up by the Linthicum Lions Club to our SPN families.
