At Saint Brigid's we want to involve the whole community in a way that teaches empathy, encourages respect and nurtures compassion. St. Brigid's Pantry welcomes the stranger, feeds the hungry, and relieves the struggles of people in our community every week. The people we serve are our neighbors and friends.
The dignity and respect for every human being is our goal and our promise at Baptism.
Volunteers are always needed. The donations we receive from local churches, community groups and schools, are sorted by volunteers, placed on shelves, and bagged for distribution. Please call the Church office to schedule a time to come in and fill out a volunteer application.
St. Brigid’s Pantry is open:
Mondays and Wednesdays from 11:00 a.m -1:00 p.m.
Referrals from social service agencies and pre-registration are not required. Clients may register during our normal operating hours.
