St. Martin’s has a long-standing tradition of supporting the Circle of Concern Food Pantry. Our donations help provide assistance to families in West County. The pantry now feeds nearly 2,200 people each month, giving each family a week or more of nutritious meals.
If you would like to help our friends and neighbors in need, please bring non-perishable food and toiletry items. We collect them throughout the month (there is a basket in the coat closet) and all items are blessed on the second Sunday of the month.
Some common items to donate: canned meat and fish, peanut butter, jelly, rice, pasta, pasta sauce, dinner “helpers,” soup, canned vegetables, boxed cereals, dessert mixes and toiletries (soap, toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner, lotion).
