St Michael parishoners, caring for those in need...
St Michael Community Care distributed groceries to 3,758 households (10,815 people) in the first quarter of 2022. We especially thank the volunteers from St Michael's and friends from throughout the city who served more than 1,500 hours to distribute fresh produce, protein and pantry staples to Livermore residents struggling with food insecurity. We are grateful to have been awarded a grant from the Alameda County Community Food Bank to purchase a three-door refrigerator and a three-door freezer. We also installed a new storage unit outside the hall to house them, making food distribution easier.
St Michael Community Care, in partnership with the Alameda County Community Food Bank, distributes groceries on Saturdays from 9 am - 11 am. Volunteers also deliver food to those who are homebound. Signup to volunteer at StMichaelLivermore.com/Groceries
St Vincent de Paul provided rent and utility assistance to 22 families, a total of $8,081 in the first quarter of 2022. We also assisted with other needs such as assisting an elderly couple to buy a new window for their mobile home after it got damaged due to being broken into. We also provided 105 families with food. We serve anyone in need at Livermore and can call for assistance from our helpline number 925-758-0126.
We also are looking for people to serve and be there to offer empathy who come for help; this could be from our food locker or doing home visits in which we not only look to assist materially but also see Christ in them. If interested contact firstname.lastname@example.org
