I spoke with Kent Vann the director at the St. Francis House this morning, July 7, 2008. They have a desperate need for food.
Their pantry shelves are bare. The reserve food they keep in their two large freezers has been completely used up and the freezers have been unplugged to conserve electricity. Hundreds of hungry people come to St. Francis for food each week. Kent tells me that if they don’t get some donations right away, many of the people who come to them for food will leave hungry.
Items St. Francis House needs most include:
Canned or fresh vegetables
Canned goods of any kind
Frozen meats such as chicken, ground beef, turkey
All contributions and donations to St. Francis House are tax deductible. If you have any questions, or would like to help, please call 378-9079 and speak with Kent or one of his staff.
Please pass this along to anyone who might be willing to help.
All the best,
