Food Pantry Updates
The past few weeks we shared with you some of the exciting changes coming to the food pantry. If you missed the previous updates check out recent Canticles on the St. Cletus website.
This past week marked a milestone for the food pantry. It was our final monthly distribution out of the Church! Thank you to all of our amazing volunteers! Each month the St. Cletus 7th graders helped move the bags and distribution items from the Rectory Basement over to the Church Narthex. We also want to thank our newly trained volunteers who helped implement our new online registration system, Food Bank Manager (more info on this is next week’s bulletin). Thank you: Maureen Soldat, Julia Jauregui, Maria Jacobs, Mollie Stone, and Donna Gacek!

• Small kitchen items (i.e. dishes, pots and pans, glassware, flatware, serving pieces)
