Helping Hands is a church-based service organization that depends on the generosity and loyalty of our parishioners and other organizations to help stock our food pantry with food items and toiletries. We thank you for your donations. Our mission is to distribute those food and toiletry items to people who need help in maintaining sustenance, both parishioners and non-parishioners of this parish. Currently we have need for the following items: cereals, rice, beans (pinto, lima, etc.), condiments (ketchup, mustard, etc.), canned fruits, jelly, pancake mix and syrup, macaroni and cheese. These items may change from month to month, depending on demand. If you are aware of someone in need, please contact Pattie (Secretary) at 908-351-4444 or speak to one of our priests. Food packages will be prepared and packed up in boxes to be picked up at the Rectory. We respect your privacy and all requests will be processed through the rectory and held in the upmost confidentiality. Again, thank you for your continued support.
