Emergency Food Drive Results

Parishioners of OLQM helped bring the bags of food donated by our parish to a Catholic Charities van, which came to bring the donated food items to St. Pius V Parish in Jamaica. There, volunteers are feeding the newly arrived asylum seekers two hot meals a day. We also collected $1,939 in cash as part of the emergency food drive on the weekend of June 24/25. We are distributing these funds by sending $1,500 to St. Pius V’s church kitchen and the balance to Catholic Charities Brooklyn/Queens, which is coordinating efforts to aid the migrants. Thank you to all who donated food and dollars to the food drive.

Emergency Food Drive was held at Sunday Masses on June 24/25, 2023
