Fund Drive and Packing Help for Catholic Charities’ Thanksgiving Meal Kits

Help support this annual Holy Cross ministry

Holy Cross has supported the Durham Catholic Charities Thanksgiving meal program for the past several years, an effort coordinated by Brenda and Art LaPerre. 

They have arranged for the purchase of ingredients to provide 120 Thanksgiving meals this month for clients of Catholic Charities in Durham. 

"At a cost of about $17.00 for each meal, that brings the total cost of ingredients to just over $2,000. Basically, each donation of $50 will feed three families,” Kathy LaPerre said. “I pray this will be a successful project. The need is greater than ever.”

Volunteers Needed to Package Food | 9 AM Saturday, November 21

Brenda and Art also are recruiting volunteers to come out next Saturday morning, November 21, to help with packing the food into bags for delivery to Catholic Charities. The packing will begin at 9 AM in the Holy Cross multipurpose room. 

Everyone will be required to wear a mask, apply hand sanitizer, and keep at safe distances. The facility will be sanitized after the packing is completed, to have it ready for future use.

If you can help, please click and sign up at the Sign Up form here to let the LaPerres know you will be coming. 

Monetary donations can be made via Holy Cross’s online giving site (click here) or by sending or dropping a check off at church. Any funds over the amount needed for Thanksgiving will be applied to the parish’s Christmas project. Thank you for your support and involvement in this important ministry.
