Many Thanks!

The members of the St. Mark’s food pantry “Thanksgiving Angels” wrapped up their annual event in the city of Pittsfield by distributing donated food to 1400 families at South Congregational Church.

These St. Mark’s folks were among 150 volunteers worked hard to organize and distribute the food by the thousands of generous people of our city that donated food, money, time and physical labor to make this event happen. What a way to give thanks back to our own community. Kudos, thank yous and prayers go out to all.
