The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, St. Julia Parish Conference, would like to thank all those who helped make this Thanksgiving special for our pan-try clients. We helped 29 households, a total of 65 clients. We are grateful to:
the 17 volunteers;
St. Julia parishioners for making monetary or food donations;
the Religious Education students and their parents for helping fill the bags;
Joanne Dolan of Gold Bell for a huge amount of vegetables;
the Boyce family for donating apple cider for all of our clients;
Donelan’s Supermarket in Lincoln, and their customers, for donating over 1000 items of food;
students from the First Parish in Lincoln and their teachers for collecting a large amount of food in front of Donelan’s and the customers for buying the food;
FELS (Foundation for Educators) at the Lincoln– Sudbury Regional High School for organizing a pie sale and the families who donated their pies to our pantry clients.
It takes a village to ensure that all pantry clients can celebrate Thanksgiving. Many thanks to all of you!
