All you beautiful people have again shown your overwhelming generosity in
the donations that were dropped off last Saturday November 19, 2022. Thanks
to you, we were able to deliver 386 uncooked turkey meals to the Sisters of
Charity. Needless to say, they were overjoyed.
The ministry also provided 300 individual cooked turkey meals to the Miami
Rescue Mission which were given to the homeless on the streets. Through your
generosity, we were able to purchase food items for 100 people to donate to the
Miami Get Well Rehab Center for their Thanksgiving Dinner. Thanks to your
food donations, we were also able to provide complete uncooked meals to 6 one
parent poor families in the Homestead and Kendall area.
We also took a number of bags of clothes and cases of water to the Miami
Rescue Mission. Your extreme generosity is heartwarming and most gratefully
appreciated. You are truly doing God's work in feeding the homeless.
For Christmas the Ministry is providing 300 barbecue dinners for the homeless
to the Miami Rescue Mission on December 17th. This has been a tradition for the
last several years.
Please NO sandwiches or pasta trays on December 17th.
To help the Sisters of Charity, we are asking for complete ham dinner which
consists of the following:
- 1 – 5 -8 lb. ham (unfrozen).
- 1 - 4 lb. bag of sugar.
- 1 – small package of coffee.
- 2 – 14 oz cans of vegetables (corn or green beans).
- 1 – 2 lb. bag of rice.
- 1 - 2 cans of black beans (or small bag).
Drop off: Front of Resurrection Hall between
11:00 am – 12:15 pm on Saturday, December 17th.
For a complete dinner we are willing to provide a community hours certificate
for 8 HOURS, FOR STUDENTS OF ALL SCHOOLS, no matter how many
meals are provided.
This will be the LAST food collection until January 21st, 2023.
In January we will resume our donation and volunteer activities to what they
were pre-COVID. That is, we will be collecting food donations at SJN, and
then taking them with volunteers to the Miami Rescue Mission (MRM) and
serving the homeless in the MRM cafeteria as well as evangelizing in the chapel.
This was our previous practice. More information will be coming
soon as well as asking for volunteer signup to return to the Mission.
