NOTES FROM THE PANTRY (Samaritan Center - 732-446-1142)
During Lent we are asked to focus more intently on almsgiving which means donating money or goods to the poor and performing other acts of charity. Why not consider donating to the Samaritan Center during Lent? We are in need of the following items: toilet paper, spaghetti sauce, tuna, canned fruit, grape jelly, cranberry sauce, canned ravioli and chili.
You may bring your donations to Mass and leave it at the drop off location or bring it to the Center. We are located behind the senior center on Route 522. Monetary donations may be mailed to the Samaritan Center, P.O. Box 218, Tennent, NJ 07763. All food and monetary donations are gratefully accepted and appreciated by our clients.
