St. Joseph’s Summer Lunch Program

This week St. Mark’s volunteers, together with volunteers from Augustana Lutheran Church and Target Store, finished up packing lunches for St Joseph’s summer lunch program. As you can see, we had a great turn out again! This summer we packed a total of 3,200 bags of food that were sent home with kids to assure they had food to eat on the weekends. Thanks to St Joseph’s for letting us be a part of your program. Looking forward to helping out next summer! And thank you to all who helped set up, pack food, clean up, etc. You are all appreciated!
