70-80 homeless kids one Thursday dinner per month. The next

We would love to have your participation in one of two ways. One
Wednesday evening per month we prepare the dinner in the parish kitchen which
is a lot of fun and good fellowship. We need cooks but more importantly,
shoppers to purchase the dinner ingredients. We have created "shopping
bags" of ingredients for varying budgets. If you would like to
participate and are not on the monthly email list, you can contact Donna Sintic
You can provide financial support for this program by making out your check
to St. Augustine church, with "SPY" on the memo/subject line.
