Food Bank Collection Box

At this challenging economic time, Hemel West has decided to come together as a community to collect food donations weekly for the local Food Bank, with items they have requested (see list below).    There will be a box at both St Mary’s & St Joseph’s, and St Mark’s, where you can place donated items.  If you are in a position to donate even one item weekly – thank you.  If you are not in a position to donate at this time, please don’t worry, as there will be lots of other ways you can contribute to our community. The boxes will be available at all Masses.

If your household is one finding the present financial situation particularly challenging, please feel free to contact Deacon Simon, who may be able to direct you to appropriate help and support.  Thank you.
