Giving Thanks Food Drive
November 6-December 4, 2022
The Greenfield Salvation Army currently serves approximately 150 households. Our donations will be helping to fill their Christmas baskets this year. For a little variety, they plan to add Nutella to each basket. Please consider picking up an extra item or two when you are shopping for your own needs. A full belly is a great Christmas present! Below is a list of recommended food items to donate:
November Outreach Partner
The November Outreach recipient is Penfield Children's Center. Penfield is a Milwaukee nonprofit that serves over 1,500 children annually through early education, health services and family programing. *If you need an Outreach envelope, there are envelopes on the pamphlet holder on the front table in the Narthex.
Ongoing Outreach Collections
The Outreach Committee organizes several ongoing outreach collections including:
Peanut Butter & Jelly Club
Once a month we gather to make 300 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to be distributed to the hungry in Milwaukee. Click the button below to learn more.
Some members of our parish knit and crochet lap robes for hospice patients and those who are ill. They also make hats and scarves for ministries in our area that reach out to people who are homeless. Even if you have no experience, they are willing to teach any new volunteers how to knit or crochet!
