Food For Hungry People

ffhpThis year we celebrate 45 years of raising funds for our FOOD FOR HUNGRY PEOPLE program. Through your generosity, millions of dollars of food and aid has been distributed to the hungry poor in the United States and around the World. Every year, we are able to help more unfortunate men, women and children.

Last year our St Nicholas goal was the highest to date–$4,000, and we raised over $4,300 thanks to your generosity! This years goal is $4,500, and I know we can reach that with everyone’s help.

In the words of Metropolitan JOSEPH: “We urge you, during this season of prayer, self-discipline and fasting, to be very generous in your contribution to this campaign. As we practice the virtues that cleanse our souls, let us not forget or refrain from the “greatest of the virtues.” As important as prayer and fasting are, they are of no avail to us if we fail to give to those in need.”

Please pick-up your FFHP box on the table in the Narthex. We encourage you to utilize the FFHP [calendar] as a creative way to not only daily donate but also to be conscious of those in need.

 “When giving, give magnanimously with a look of kindness on your face, and give more than what is asked of you.” St. Isaac the Syrian
