Volunteers from St. John Paul II help sort food at our Hope Distribution Center.

Hunger doesn’t take a vacation –and neither do our volunteers!

St. Michael the Archangel volunteers help distribute food.

This summer, Catholic Charities has been blessed with the support of our volunteers from parishes across the archdiocese. From sorting food in our warehouse – Hope Distribution Center, to packing lunches for the Kids Summer Food program, to distributing groceries at our Mobile Food Distribution, these volunteers answered the call to feed the hungry in a variety of ways.

“I believe in the mission of Catholic Charities and am encouraged by the work they do in our community. Food is one of our most basic needs and yet so many must do without.” said St. Michael the Archangel parishioner and volunteer, Jane Rall.

“We are grateful our family could volunteer in just this small way, ” adds Rall. “We are also glad to work side-by-side with our Companions in Faith, Our Lady of Unity Parish. Such a simple way to live out the Gospel to love and serve others.”
