Faith in Action

June Food Drive to Benefit Community Assistance Center of Sandy Springs

Holy Spirit Catholic Church is partnering with the Community Assistance Center (CAC) of Sandy Springs for our June Food Drive. The CAC Food Pantry receives an average of 1,200 visits per month, providing food to about 500 families a month. Collection barrels will be located in the Narthex throughout the month of June. Thank you for your generosity. For more information, please contact Mary Konieczny


Please note that standard sized containers are best; oversized or family size containers are difficult to pack and carry for clients using public transportation (except for dry goods which can be repackaged into smaller containers). For safety reasons, canned and dry goods past the 3-month expiration date cannot be distributed.
