Each month a worthwhile, needy organization is selected from those submitted. Donations to our Church Poor Boxes are then sent to the organization for their use.
Empty cartons with food items listed for packing are taken by parishioners/friends of St. Simon. Filled boxes are brought back to church and given to various charitable organizations at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Children in our Religious Ed Program fill shoeboxes with items for children of similar age. Filled boxes are distributed to the less fortunate.
