Families Helping Families
Thanksgiving Box Program
Sponsored by St. Vincent DePaul & OLPH Outreach Ministry
Pick Up Boxes – Nov 4-5 | Drop Off Boxes Nov 11-12
Help us meet our goal to fill 300 boxes of food this year!
Fill a box to help a family in need!
Given these challenging economic times, your donations are greatly appreciated by residents of our Howard County community and the greater Baltimore area.
- Monetary donations are also appreciated. Pick up empty boxes in the narthex the weekend of November 4 and 5.
- Filled boxes should be returned to church the following weekend, November 11 and 12.
- To ensure that the boxes are distributed timely, boxes MUST BE RECEIVED BY NOON on November 13.
If you cannot fill a box, please consider donating. All monetary donations are equally split between the organizations that we support:
St. Veronica Parish
St. Wenceslaus Parish
Howard County Salvation Army
Elkridge Food Pantry
Phelps Luck Elementary School
OLPH Food Pantry
All donations are appreciated.
No amount is too small; on average, a filled box of food and check is valued at approximately $50.00.
