Recycling – Thank you for all the good stewards who are using our blue, marked recycle bins. However, we are finding aluminum cans and plastic bottles in the garbage. They are easy to recycle, just EMPTY them. Also, please, no “crinkly,” firm plastic food wrappers (candy bars, granola bars, etc.) in the recycle bins; only “soft” plastic (plastic bags, bread wrappers) and items marked as recyclable or with the recycle symbol.
Cards to Share? Cards are sent to parishioners for a variety of reasons, such as birthday, get well, thinking of you, holidays. If you have an abundance of greetings cards, consider bringing some in for us to use to keep people connected to our community even when they are not able to be with us.
Hildegarde’s Pantry Food of the Month – dry beans, canned pasta products, and large bags of rice (we re-bag it into individual sizes). We are also again in need of plastic grocery bags as well as reusable cloth, canvas or fiber bags (the kind you find at a grocery store or a convention) for our customers. Convenient containers for donations are at each entrance of the Cathedral Center. Thank you for helping us reduce, reuse, recycle.
THANK YOU A “Thank You” to share – A donation to Hildegarde’s Pantry came with this note: “What you do is as close to the divine as it gets. Thanks.” What a beautiful sentiment that describes the ministry of caring and sharing that takes place at Hildegarde’s Pantry.
