Peace and Social Justice

St. Robert’s Center Weekend Food Pantry

The St. Robert’s Center fills a very critical need in our area—at its inception many years ago, the St. Robert’s Center was the only weekend food pantry on the Westside, and remains one of the few places where the homeless can get food on Saturdays. Every week volunteers serve on Saturday, preparing sack lunches for people in need, and distributing clothing and toiletries as needed.  

 

YMA has nabbed a few volunteer spots for young adults in our parish to serve in June

 

Saturday, June 6       8:30am-11:30am

Saturday, June 13     8:30am-11:30am
