I just wanted to thank the Parish for its generosity. A few months ago my wife and I hit some hard times. I'm an Army Veteran with 2 combat tours in Iraq. In 2014 my PTSD raged like it had never before. At several times during the year I was totally unable to work which led to a financial crisis in our household. However with careful planning and some luck we have made it through. One of the things that helped us immensely was the food pantry your parish operates. It wasn't a lot or was it often but it got us through and gave us continued hope....May the Lord continue to bless you and the flock you shepherd. - Name Withheld
I am so grateful to have access to this gift to help me to get through each month. St. Joseph's has helped me eat better with the meat items and the produce and the bread and bakery items. It is a tool in the hand of God to take care of me. - Name Withheld

Dear St Joseph Food Pantry, Thank you. After a drunk driver hit me, I had to give my all to God more than ever before. No family here, Single mom of two, and I lost my job. I didn't regain the use of my walking abilities till 4 months after. I am so very thankful for your generous and non-judgmental assistance. As a college grad, I'd never think I'd be in such need.... May God bless! - Name Withheld
