To the Editor:
Greetings to our Friends and Neighbors.
We are proud to announce that a Soup Kitchen program for feeding the needy is being established at St. Augustine’s Parish Center in Peru!
The mission of the Soup Kitchen is to provide a hot meal for the elderly, the unemployed or under-employed, or any other families or persons in need weekly.
In order to provide this much needed service to our local community, we are seeking donations from area businesses. Monetary donations can be mailed to the address above and checks should be made payable to: St. Augustine’s Church with “Soup Kitchen” noted on the memo line.
If you prefer to donate specific items to this cause, arrangements can be made to pick them up at your convenience.
With great enthusiasm and commitment from our volunteers, and through donations from people like you, the first Soup Kitchen meal will be served on Wednesday, May 16th, 2012. These meals will continue weekly each Wednesday, and are open to the public free of charge.
Thank you in advance for your support!
Father Alan Shnob, St. Augustine’s Church
