This Week of Thanksgiving, We Thank You
With the love and generosity of our St. Spyridon family, we collected 46 Thanksgiving boxes for the needy in our community and 20 boxes of pantry goods for St. Innocent Orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico.
The Thanksgiving boxes support our local House of Neighborly Service, providing food for those struggling to have a traditional holiday meal. The pantry donations -- from flypaper traps to crayons, cleaning supplies to coffee and cereal -- filled 20 boxes to support the Orthodox orphanage. The items have been shipped at no cost to us because of the number of donations.
St. Spyridon parishioners are fulfilling the call of Christ and our duty to help others. Philoptochos will continue to connect members of the parish to Christ and to one another through service to those in need.
