Over 60 people are served each day the Door Ministry is open. This number includes adult stop-ins for clothing and food items. The Door Ministry is open Monday through Thursday from 9 AM – 12 noon most weeks of the year.
For the fiscal year ending in June 2018 about $1,000 per month was given to families in need; 85% for utilities to help them stay in their homes. Pattie makes many referrals too. Thanks for our donors!
On the average 200 families, 250 adults, and 250 children, 500 in all, are served with food pantries each month.
Almost one thousand receive clothing, food, and/or financial assistance each month; 50% are white, 45% African-American, and 5% Native-American, Hispanic, or Asian.
Parishioners from Mary Our Queen contribute food donations every month. These same folks also bring clothes and donate financially. Volunteers from Tarkio, Missouri, come monthly to help in both the Door Ministry and the lunch program. Bread, sweets, and produce are delivered weekly through Holy Family’s food redistribution program. Excess food and clothes are shared with the Beautiful Gate Ministries, and with the Winnebago Indian reservation. All our volunteers are greatly appreciated!
Jack Kelly, long-time assistant to Pattie, retired at the end of June, 2017, but continues to volunteer some of the time. Thanks Jack!
