Funds and Volunteers Needed for DCFP Christmas Dinner Project

$16.50 will help cover the cost of each meal.

Holy Cross volunteers and donors provide great support to the Durham Community Food Pantry in its service to those in the Durham community needing food assistance throughout the year, and especially during the holiday seasons.

With Thanksgiving behind us (you can read the story here), it's time to help the Durham Community Food Pantry prepare to meet the nutritional needs of its clients at Christmas. DCFP will be distributing food to provide dinners of ham, side dishes, and desserts to its client households. Please consider making a donation to help provide Durham residents who are food insufficient with a good Christmas dinner. 

Sixteen dollars and fifty cents ($16.50) will help cover the cost of each meal; however, any amount is appreciated. Our goal is to provide 108 meals. Make checks payable to Holy Cross and write “Christmas Meal” on the memo line. Donation envelopes are in the pews. Donations are needed this weekend.

Volunteers needed

Volunteers are also needed on Saturday, December 14, starting at 8 AM, to bag items for each meal. If you can help, report to Durham Community Food Pantry (Catholic Charities), 2020 Chapel Hill Road, Durham, Suite 30 in the Lakewood Shopping Center. Children ages 11 and older may volunteer, but those under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent.
