Sunday School Lenten Outreach - Grass Roots Shelter

Hello St. Matthew's! 


For our Lenten Outreach project this year, the Sunday School is collecting items to help fill the current pantry needs at the Grassroots Crisis Intervention Shelter. There is a box for donations in the Narthex, and we will collect items through Sunday, April 2. 


Please note that the Center has requested specific items. Please see the list for their needs.


If you would like to donate a gift card to Wal-Mart or Giant instead, please see Kate Richer. If you have any questions, please contact Kate at


*Also please note that this is different from the "Loaves and Fishes" donations.*


Thank you so much!
