March 28, 2020 - CANCELLED
Due to the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak and in line with state regulations, we are canceling the Lent 2020 food packaging event. It is our hope to reschedule at a later date. Check back for information around the traditional end of the school year or follow along in your parish bulletins. Thanks to the families that have already turned in financial donations and to those who were registered to volunteer at the event! Given our anticipated financial surplus (beyond what is required to cover costs for a 125,000 meal event), we will be making donations to local food pantries who will need assistance in the coming weeks. Those pantries will include the Catholic Multicultural Center, St. Vincent de Paul, Middleton Outreach Ministry (MOM), Oregon Food Pantry, and other organizations. Thank you for partnering with Feed My Sheep to combat hunger locally, nationally, and internationally especially in the midst of this global crisis.
Two parts to Feed My Sheep:
If possible, send into your parish any donations you were planning on sending in! We are going to pass along any surplus monies to area/partner pantries in early April!
Thank you in advance!
When the packaging event is scheduled, we will pass along information to sign-up for the alternate date Feed My Sheep 2020.
When can I help?
The answer to that is currently uncertain. When Feed My Sheep does happen, the big day is split into volunteer shifts.
Shift one: 9:00-10:30 am
Shift two: 11:00-12:30 pm
Shift three: 1:15- 2:45 pm
Shift four: 3:15-4:30 pm
We look forward to seeing you at one of our shifts when the 2020 event is rescheduled!
