Ministries: Outreach: Valley View Community Foodbank
I was hungry and you gave me food;
I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink:
Valley View is our neighborhood food bank. Founded in March 2007, they serve over 400 people a day – 32% from Sun City - and are committed to doing as much as possible to serve the needs of our diverse community. To partially address this need, our coordinator contacts Valley View to determine the most needed items, and communicates it to the parish.
We put a sampling of our monthly donations at the base of the altar on the first Sunday of the month and part of the blessing during that service. After the blessing, a volunteer delivers our contributions. We announce the number of pounds delivered in the weekly bulletin.
Outreach also provides $100 to purchase turkeys for Valley View's Thanksgiving Turkey Drive annually. They can purchase 25 turkeys for that much.
