Parish Social Ministry: Provide support and resources for those that need assistance, food, social service, and spiritual support, if desired. This is on an as-needed basis. Each situation is unique and needs may or not be met depending on circumstances and resources available. If you need help please contact us at 614-761-0905 ext. 5 or StTeresasOutreach@stjoanofarcpowell.org.
Weekly food collections in the Narthex: Through the generous donations of our parishioners and partners we collect weekly donations of canned goods, dry goods, toiletries, diapers, and cleaning supplies.
Donations are used for our emergency walk-in assistance and the remaining is split between Help My Neighbor food pantry, St. Lawrence Haven, and JOIN. Food can be left in the food box in the narthex anytime the building is open or dropped off at the bell tower between 10:00 – 10:30 on Monday mornings. For a list of needed food times, CLICK HERE. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
Weekly Bread Runs: Fresh bread is picked up at local grocery stores and bakeshops throughout the week. Bread is delivered to a variety of pantries we support. We need more volunteers to help get bread from the stores/bakeshops to local pantries. If you would like more information about this ministry, please contact Karen Lazor at 330-219-5624 or email@example.com.
Monthly Sandwich Making: Prepare sandwiches at your home and bring them to the parish. A volunteer takes the prepared sandwiches down to the Cathedral, St. Lawrence Haven, and Holy Family Soup Kitchen for distribution to the homeless. Get the step-by-step instructions.
The programs and services provided by St. Teresa’s Outreach are the result of the time, talent and treasure of our parishioners and parish groups.
To find out more about how you can volunteer your time and talent, contact Angelita Salyers, 614.761.0905, ext. 315
