Holiday Meals on Wheels: On 5 holidays a year (Easter, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas) beginning at 7:30 AM, teams home-deliver meals to seniors. Normal delivery route of 10 clients is strategically mapped. Usually done by noon. Great for family participation! Each route requires a driver and “jumper.” Boxes are heavy so you must be able to carry.
Food Pantry Pickup, Organization, and Distribution: Volunteers needed both Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8 AM to 3 PM. On Tuesdays, pick up donations from suburban parishes and/or Gleaners, either in the church van or private vehicles. Then return to St. Moses to sort and shelve items. On Wednesday mornings, meet in the pantry to assemble bags; work to distribute the bags from noon to 2 PM.
Gardens of Giving: Both campuses have empty plots of land that could be converted to community gardens. Help feed the poor by planting and harvesting produce grown at home or on church property. We need weeders, planters, harvesters and & drivers.
