The pantry will be open after all Masses on the 23rd for those interested in making a donation of perishable items such as dinner rolls, produce, turkeys, and pies. We will also accept perishable donations the entire week before Thanksgiving. Call 699-6401 before coming to be sure someone is available to accept your donation.

ATTENTION ALL BAKERS: In addition to the dinner we bring, the guests at the Samaritan Center love our home-baked desserts. Anyone wishing to bake an easily transported dessert please contact the human development office.
