Ss. Robert and William Parish can provide an “Outreach” to others because of your gracious generosity and parishioner volunteers. I am grateful for what you offer and am honored to be able to serve those who come to our door in your name. I pray that you will continue to support our Outreach programs through your contributions or consider making an offering so that we can serve those who ask for help. Know that every effort is made to be a good and trustworthy steward of your donations.
One of the monthly outreach programs we service is our Community Meal. This is held on the last Tuesday of each month. With food purchased from the Cleveland Food Bank, we serve a complete meal (salad, bread, an entrée, 2 vegetables, and a homemade dessert). In October we served 97 people. The meal is open to all – parishioners and neighbors. The gathering provides the opportunity to meet people and socialize with others. Paid through the donations of parishioners, the meal is prepared by a core group of 10 volunteers. Students from our parish school assist with the serving. We recently expanded our menu and now also provide a take-home bag of produce and other staples for all who attend. The added take-home bag program needs new volunteers to pack and distribute bags.
