A Food Pantry distribution is hosted on the first Saturday of each month at Our Lady of Grace, in Shepherds Hall, by the St. Vincent de Paul Society. Items collected from the Food Pantry collection at Our Lady of Grace and other parishes are distributed along with food items provided by the Westmoreland County Food Bank.
HOW CAN I HELP?
The Food Pantry is always looking for volunteers to assist in distributing the food, assist clients in carrying the food to their vehicles, and various other tasks. A person can volunteer once or many times. No monthly commitment is necessary. All are welcome to help, parishioners and non-parishioners. Families are encouraged to volunteer together. All volunteers are asked to be at the hall by 8:45 a.m. on the distribution day and stay until approximately 12:30 p.m.
UPDATE as of 1/1/2017: ALL VOLUNTEERS MUST BE AT LEAST 14 YEARS OF AGE.
To volunteer your time, please call the parish office at 724-838-9480.
