Feinstein Million Dollar Challenge

The Feinstein One Million Dollar Challenge is underway again for 2011. All donations, either food or money, received by the food pantry between March 1 and April 30 are counted towards giving us a proportionate share in the Challenge money. And of course all donations in and of themselves are vitally important to stocking the pantry and providing food for the pantry patrons. Your generosity will be greatly appreciated.

Prince Henry Society Brotherhood Award

Last week the Prince Henry Society of New Bedford awarded Paula and Arnie Briden their Brotherhood Award in recognition of the great work our parish food pantry has done.

Upon receiving the award both Paula and Arnie graciously acknowledged that what is being accomplished at the pantry is only possible because of the hard work of all of the volunteers and they accepted the award on behalf of everyone who helps. Father Landry reiterated this in stating that the award was "Not only a tribute to the commitment of Paula and Arnie, but to all those who collaborate with them to make our food pantry do so much good. Congratulations to Arnie and Paula and to all the volunteers at our parish food pantry."

Father Landry also expressed gratitude to the Prince Henry Society "for bringing the hard work of our food pantry to the attention of all its members in this way".
