St. George in Pharr Rewarded for Good Works
- December 30
(Dallas, TX) _St. George the Great-martyr Church in Pharr, TX_
(http://www.stgeorgepantry.org/) is one of the recipients of an OCA Charity Appeal grant
for 2008. St George’s rector, Priest Antonio Perdomo and his flock have been
instrumental in reaching out to those in need for many years. The OCA grant
will help the St. George Food Pantry located in Hildalgo County of the Rio
Grande Valley (statistically the second poorest county in the United States)
better serve those in need by providing a grant of $8,000.00 to help purchase a
new truck to aid in its food distribution ministry.
The announcement of the OCA Charity Appeal grant was made by Archpriest John
Reeves, the chairperson of the OCA Charity Committee and former rector of
St. George Great-martyr Church and current pastor of Holy Trinity Church in
State College, PA.
In addition to a food pantry, St. George’s also provides winter clothing to
those need. _Click here to see a local television station’s coverage of St.
George’s clothing drive._
