Helping Hands Food Ministry
This ministry is devoted to feeding the hungry in our community. Dedicated volunteers use a box in the vestibule to collect parishioner donations of food and personal items for the needy in our community. Volunteers transport these items monthly to the Helping Hands Food Pantry in Reynoldsburg. Volunteers contact the pantry director to identify what items are needed most. The information is then posted in the church bulletin, on the lobby bulletin board, and from this webpage. For more information or to become involved as a volunteer in helping provide food to our neighbors, please use our form below to contact us.
