Pack-A-Bag is a yearly service project at the parish that helps to provide the fixings for a Christmas dinner for families in need. The St. Vincent de Paul Society Food Pantry distributes these dinner bags from OLG on the first Saturday of December.
HOW CAN I HELP?
All you need to do to help is to pick up an empty bag(s) at the sign-up tables in the gathering space during November. Bags filled with the designated items can be returned to Shepherds Hall or to a volunteer in the parking lot circle the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Any left-over dinner bags are used for emergency food pantry requests during the month or given to the Blackburn Center, Welcome Home Shelter and the Latrobe Men’s Shelter in our area.
YOUR GENEROSITY IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!
