The Social Justice Ministry thanks all those who helped make the 2016 Thanksgiving Food Drive and Christmas Toy Drive so successful.
Each fall the our ministry leads the parish in two opportunities to help DC-area families during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE
For the Thanksgiving holiday, we provide hundreds of turkeys and food baskets for those who may struggle to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal. This year St. Augustine parishioners provided a turkey and bags of food packed with sides to over 500 families in the DC area. In addition to donating food, parishioners helped transport, sort, pack, and distribute the food in the weeks before Thanksgiving.
