Unemployment benefits have been cut. Times are very difficult. St. Mark’s community has always been willing to help their neighbors. Please continue to help us to help them.

Especially needed:  Soup, Chunky Soup, Pasta, Pasta Sauce, Cereal and Boxed Meals.

Thank you in advance for your continuing support. Monetary donations are always welcome.

Love and Peace, Your Food Pantry Volunteers
