St. Vincent de Paul food drive to support Doorways


Two Seekonk churches - Our Lady of Mt Carmel and Our Lady Queen of Martyrs - conducted a joint Lenten food drive last month for the benefit of area food pantries in Seekonk, Rehoboth and Attleboro, collecting hundreds of pounds of food. The food drive was coordinated by the St. Vincent de Paul Society, a ministry of lay Catholics inspired by Gospel values to serve their communities. Their donation to Doorways supports many Seekonk residents in need of a helping hand, and will fill the cupboards of homes throughout Seekonk for weeks to come. Such food drives provide not only great quantities of food, but also welcome variety. When someone donates a food item they particularly enjoy, someone else on the receiving end is delighted to discover that same food item on our shelf. When people participate in a food drive, it really makes a difference; over seventy families rely on Doorways on a regular basis, and Doorways relies on people like the parishioners of OLMC. May God bless you all.
