St. Mark’s and St. John’s delivery
Over this past month 120 bags of food were donated to St. Mark’s and St. John’s Food Pantry to help the people in the Beechwood area of the city. Since the beginning of the Pandemic (March 25) SM&SJ have made 338 emergency food deliveries and served 174 families. Our donations helped with that effort. The hope through additional donations, they will be able to continue to help those in need.
