What would you do with 22 cents? 

Feed My Starving Children can purchase, package and transport one meal for 22 cents!

  South of the River Mobile Pack 2018

WE are partnering again with Feed My Starving Children and 20 other South of the River churches to pack over 2 million meals in a one-week period for starving children throughout the world.  This will take 12,000 volunteers to pack the meals and $450,000.00 must be raised to pay for food and shipping costs.  We are committed to sending 100 volunteers and at least $3000 to pay for some of the food and shipping.  Each volunteer usually packs $50 worth of food per shift.  It costs $.22/meal.  There are jobs for all ages and physical dexterity.  You can volunteer for sitting or standing jobs and children are welcomed over age 4, accompanied by an adult.  If you or your group intend on making a financial contribution, please make a check out to “Feed My Starving Children” and turn it in after all the Masses the weekend of January 27-28th, so it will count towards the amount we, as St Joseph Community, will be contributing.  Here are the shifts that we have registered for:

            TUESDAY, January 30, 2018: 12:30 – 2:30 PM (This is designated Catholic Schools Day.  Participating Catholic School students are requested to wear their school uniforms.  Childcare will be provided on site for children – 4 or under) This time is for all families, friends, individuals and groups.

            THURSDAY, February 1, 2018: 6-8:30 PM is reserved for St Joseph Parishioners.  Gather a group of friends, families or ministry partners, like Loaves and Fishes, bible study group, confirmation class, Knights of Columbus, birthday celebration.  There will be over 700 people packing at each shift. 
It will be a fun evening for a worthwhile cause. 

            FRIDAY, Feb 2, 2018:   8:00 – 10:00 PM a great way for teens to spend an evening, packing with other young people and praising the Lord.

            SATURDAY, Feb. 3, 2018:  2:00 – 4:00 PM St. Joe’s families this is for you, a great way for the whole family to work together, youth groups, faith formation, school families, American Heritage Girls,             scouts, and sport teams. Invite your friends.
